Director Sacha Gervasi has tapped Scarlett Johansson and James D’Arcy to play “Psycho” stars Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins in Fox Searchlight’s “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho.”

Anthony Hopkins will play the iconic director, while Helen Mirren will play his wife, Alma.

Gervasi’s pic follows Hitchcock and his struggles during the filmmaking of the horror classic.

John McLaughlin penned the script. Ivan Reitman, Joe Medjuck and Tom Pollack will produce through their Montecito Picture Company along with Tom Thayer.

Sources tell Variety that “Making of Psycho” has drawn comparisons to “My Week With Marilyn,” and that the role of Janet Leigh could lead to the same awards consideration for Johansson that the Marilyn Monroe role did for Michelle Williams.

Though D’Arcy’s role is smaller compared to his co-stars, it’s still considered a major part given how important Perkins is to the “Psycho” legacy.

    I think this is a great role for Scarletty. Maybe she should consider doing some backgbround research by visiting a modern day real institute where psychos are housed, like passages malibu. I am currently a patient on a week by week basis and trust me when I say there are a lot off psychos here
