Scarlett Johansson will reenact cinema's most famous shower scene for director Sacha Gervasi's feature film Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho.
Variety reports that the Avengers starlet will play actress Janet Leigh in the film, which has also cast British actor James D'Arcy (Master and Commander) as the late Anthony Perkins, who played serial killer Norman Bates in the Psycho series. Leigh played the doomed Marion Crane, slain in the shower by Bates in the 1960 slasher classic.
Anthony Hopkins will play director Alfred Hitchcock and Helen Mirren his wife Alma Reville. The John McLaughlin-scripted film is based on Stephen Rebello's book. The Hollywood Reporter says the focus of the film is on Hitch and Alma and that Johansson's role as Leigh will be smaller.
