Alfred Hitchcock Presents: The Cheney Vase

The Fox Searchlight film study leading roles will be to Anthony Hopkins (Hitchcock) and Helen Mirren (whose role will be to the filmmaker's wife, Alma Reville).

U.S. actress Scarlett Johansson will play the famous Janet Leigh, the star of Psycho (1960), in Making of Psycho, a film about the making of the legendary Alfred Hitchcock film.

As reported by the online edition of the magazine Variety, director Sacha Gervasi (The Story of Anvil Anvil!) will also feature James D'Arcy to portray Anthony Perkins, the actor who played the murderer of the Hitchcock film.

Psycho is considered a masterpiece of suspense, remembered by many for the scene in the shower murder perpetrated by a madman Norman Bates.

The Fox Searchlight film study leading roles will be to Anthony Hopkins (Hitchcock) and Helen Mirren (whose role will be to the filmmaker's wife, Alma Reville).

The work will feature a script by John McLaughlin (Black Swan) and funding of Ivan Reitman, Joe Medjuck and Tom Pollack through Montecito Picture Company production.

The project is based on the book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello, who captures the moment in the life of Hitchcock in which, at the height of his career as a director, decides to invest in a horror movie low budget: Psycho.

At that time no studies have wanted to risk and the director had to achieve self financing the project.

The film got to be one of the most successful of his career and is one of the most influential in film history.

In January it was announced that the cable channel A & E would shoot a TV series that will serve as a prequel, previous history in time-of Psycho. The project entitled Bates Motel and produced by Universal Television.
