Reel News...First Look At ScoJo As Janet Leigh In The Upcoming "Hitchcock" Biopic

First things first, a lot of buzz has already surrounded the upcoming Alfred Hitchcock biopic, (simply titled Hitchcock, based on the book) for a good number of reasons.  It has a number of Hollywood A-listers singed on that includes Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Scarlet Johannson, Toni Collette and Jessica Biel among others.   The movie, being one of two Hitchcock-related films that are currently in production, is based on the book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho and I assume it will portray exactly that.  About a month ago,  a photo of Anthony Hopkins portraying Sir Alfred Hitchcock was released to the public and the results were near perfect.  Oscar talks are already there from the one shot.  

In similar fashion, a new photo of Scarlet Johansson has now hit the internet and gone viral for all cinephiles and Hitchcock lovers to enjoy.  Seen most recently in the summer Blockbuster The Avengers, Johansson's role in Hitchcock will be portraying Psycho actress Janet Leigh, best known in the word of film for her fatal shower scene in the 1960 Hitchcock classic.  Just like Hopkins, ScoJo looks spot on in her character, perfectly capturing the seductive charm of Leigh's fatal Marion Crane.  The project keeps getting better with each new picture, making the wait all more suspenseful, as the real Mr. Hitchcock would no doubt approve of.  At this point, all I want is to see James D'Arcy pop up as Norman Bates.


  1. So glad you're keep us up to date with all of this Hitch flicks coming out. Oh and yes, someone give us a James D'Arcy-as-Perkins still!

  2. Glad you're as stoked about the films as I am and yeah I hope they continue the trend and release a picture of D'Arcy as Perkins very soon.
