In case you don't know, they're making a movie about the making of the movie Psycho, based on the book Alfred Hitchcock and The Making of Psycho. It's got quite an impressive cast list, too:

  • Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh
  • James D'Arcy as Anthony Perkins
  • Jessica Biel as Vera Miles
  • Helen Mirren as Alma Reville, Alfred Hitchcock's wife
  • Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock
  • Toni Collette as Hitchcock's trusted assistant, Peggy Robertson
  • Danny Huston as screenwriter Whitfield Cook (a friend of Reville)
  • Michael Stuhlbarg as agent and studio boss Lew Wasserman
  • Michael Wincott as Ed Gein
  • Ralph Macchio as screenwriter Joseph Stefano
  • Richard Portnow as Paramount Studios boss Barney Balaban
  • Wallace Langham as graphic designer Saul Bass
  • Kurtwood Smith as Geoffrey Shurlock.

Now photos are emerging of what people look like in character. Here's Hopkins as Hitchcock:
