scarjo to star as janet leigh

Guess we should call her PsyJo! LOLz!

We're excited to announce that Scarlett Johansson has just signed on to play Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho.

Here's how the movie is being described:

"The project is based on the non-fiction book by Stephen Rebello that tracks how Hitchcock, 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. The movie, of course, became one of his biggest hits and one of the most influential of all time."

Other actors attached to the project are Anthony Hopkins who plays Hitchcock himself, and Helen Mirren who plays his wife Alma Reville.

Sounds fantastic! We're VERY impressed with this cast, and we'll of course be curious to see Scarlett in the infamous Psycho shower scene! Ha!

What do U think? Will ScarJo make a good Janet Leigh???
