Before "Psycho" proved naysayers (Paramount) wrong by becoming a hit in 1960, Hitchcock struggled to get it made. The script, penned by John Mclaughlin (with revisions by Ryan Murphy, Stephen Rebello and Gervasi), is a love story about the famed director and his wife during the making of film.
Sure, fans will be excited to see Johansson shooting the shower scene (it took Hitchcock over a week to shoot, before it became the stuff of editing legend), but the whole package is promising indeed. Check out the original "Psycho" trailer and a modern reworking below:
The Fox Searchlight pic is produced by Ivan Reitman, Joe Medjuck and Tom Pollock (Montecito Picture Company), along with Tom Thayer and Alan Barnette.
