Hitchcock mania continues: Weeks after remakes of Rebecca and Suspicion were announced, Scarlett Johansson has been cast in Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. She'll play Janet Leigh in the film based on Stephen Rebello's nonfiction book, directed by Anvil! The Story of Anvil helmer Sacha Gervasi, and written by Black Swan's John J. McLaughlin. If that's too much potential greatness to bear, skip this next bit: Anthony Hopkins will play Hitchcock, Helen Mirren will play Hitchcock's wife, Alma Reville.
