Scarlett Johansson channels Janet Leigh in new image from Hitchcock
One of the most fascinating directors of all time has been garnering a lot of attention in Hollywood. Alfred Hitchcock is the subject of not one, but two films in the works. One will be made for British television and will be called “The Girl” while the other is getting all the love from Tinseltown and will simply be called HITCHCOCK (formerly titled ALFRED HITCHCOCK AND THE MAKING OF PSYCHO). Today we’re getting a look at THE AVENGERS star Scarlett Johansson who will be playing Janet Leigh in the film and she looks pretty good.
Alongside Scarlett Johansson, HITCHCOCK will star Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock and will be surrounded by fellow stars that include: Helen Mirren, Jessica Biel, Michael Stuhlbarg, Toni Colette, James D’Arcy, Danny Huston and Michael Wincott. Sacha Gervasi will take on directing duties and obviously the film will follow Alfred Hitchcock during the time he shot his most famous film PSYCHO. HITCHCOCK looks like it’s in the midst of shooting and we’ll probably see it in theaters sometime in 2013.
We just reported that Scarlett Johansson had just finished filming UNDER THE SKIN with Jonathan Glazer and she apparently moved right onto her next project. Along with HITCHCOK, Scarlett Johansson will have another film releasing in 2013 in the form of DON JON’S ADDICTION in which she’ll star alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Julianne Moore and Tony Danza (I know, where has he been right?!). Add in those two films along with an inevitable sequel to Joss Whedon’s THE AVENGERS and we’ll be seeing quite a bit of Scarlett Johansson in the next few years. I find that most of the movies Scarlett Johansson takes part in to be pretty decent so I’m looking forward to see what else comes down the pipe for the actress. (The Playlist)
