NEW YORK – Scarlett Johansson will play ‘Psycho’ star Janet Leigh in her new movie. The film is about the making of Alfred Hitchcok’s classic and Johansson will the play role of the actress who starred in it. The movie, whose cast will be completed by Helen Mirren in the role of Alfred Hitchcock’s wife, will focus on an untold story in the life of the British director.
The movie Psycho was produced by Hitchock on a low budget, reports The Telegraph. The role of Janet Leigh “could lead to the same awards consideration for Johansson that the Marilyn Monroe role did for Michelle Williams.”Source:
