Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho Adds Jessica Biel


Jessica Biel is the latest name to join the cast of Fox Searchlight’s Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, Montecito’s adaptation of the Stephen Rebello non-fiction book. Deadline has the news, saying that Biel will portray Psycho star Vera Miles.

Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) is directing the film, which tells the true tale of Hitchcock’s attempts to finance his now-classic 1960 horror film. Adapted by John McLaughlin, who co-wrote Black Swan, the story is centered on the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife Alma Reville.

Biel joins Anthony Hopkins in the Hitchock role with Helen Mirren starring as Alma. Scarlett Johansson and James D’Arcy were previously announced to play actors Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins.

Biel appeared late last year in New Year’s Eve and will soon appear in Total Recall and Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes.
