The upcoming movie-about-a-movie "Alfred Hitchcock And The Making Of Psycho" continues to firm up its cast, and after adding Jessica Biel this morning, four more have come aboard the film, which is gearing up to go in front of cameras next month.

Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Michael Stuhlbarg and Michael Wincott ("Before Night Falls," "Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves") are now on aboard the film, making for one helluva impressive lineup. They join Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson and James D'Arcy in the Sacha Gervasi directed film about the rocky production of the now classic thriller, one that saw Hitchcock fighting against the disinterest of the studio, who gave him few resources to make the movie with. Hitchcock and his wife Alma Reville will be played by Hopkins and Mirren, with ScarJo and D'Arcy as Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins. Colette will portray the director's assistant Peggy Robertson, with Huston as Alma's friend Whitfield Cook and Stuhlbarg as legendary agent and Hollywood figure Lew Wasserman. But perhaps most intriguingly, Wincott will be playing Ed Gein, the real life murderer who inspired the book and subsequent film. How he will be worked into the story -- since as far as we known he and Hitchcock never crossed paths -- we're curious to see.

The project is set up at Fox Searchlight with filming set to kick off in April. This is shaping up to be a fascinating picture, and the inclusion of Gein seems to indicate Gervasi's approach may not stick to the usual playbook for this sort of material, so we're eager to see how this turns out.
