Scarlett Johansson plays Janet Leigh playing Marion Crane…in Hitchcock’s Psycho!

Hasn’t she come a long way? Now, Scar Jo plays Janet Leigh’s character, “Marion Crane” in the new film, Hitchcock, scheduled for a theatrical release early-2013 (in Australia). Alfred Hitchcock will be portrayed by Anthony Hopkins and his wife, Alma will be portrayed by Helen Mirren. Jessica Biel also stars, as Vera Miles. The film essentially studies the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife, all the while, we get a peek into a time when Hitchcock’s biggest hit, Psycho, is in production.

If done well, it has “Oscar nods” written all over it. A first look at Scarlett Johansson in costume and make up as Janet Leigh and playing her Psycho character, Marion Crane shows what good casting can do for a film portraying real-life stars of yesteryear. She looks eerily like Leigh. Now we await the trailer. I’ll post it here as soon as it becomes available.

*Quirky fact – Psycho was original filmed in colour…and the blood was chocolate syrup!
