The cast for "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho" is forming together perfectly with the additions of Scarlett Johnasson and James D'Arcy ("W.E."). It just makes the overall cast even more appealing since it already includes Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren. The film will be directed by Sacha Gervasi ("Anvil! The Story of Anvil") and is based on the novel of the same name, written for the big screen by John McLaughlin ("Black Swan").

The story follows Hitckcock (Hopkins) who, at the height of his game as a director, decided to make a "lowly" horror movie. No studio wanted to touch it initially so Hitchcock scrounged for financing by himself. In the movie, Johansson is signed up to play Janet Leigh while D'Arcy will take on the role of Anthony Perkins.

Scarlett Johnasson will next be seen in Joss Whedon's "The Avengers," due out in AMC Theatres on May 4.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
