Jessica Biel Joins Scarlett Johansson in 'Psycho' Movie

Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johansson in the same sentence alone is enough to get some people going, but the same movie? Fahgettaboudit!

Jessica has just been cast as the second female lead in the upcoming movie Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. I’m not entirely sure what the movie is about, but I think it has something to do with Alfred Hitchcock. And possibly the making of Psycho.

It was previously reported that Scarlett Johansson has been cast, playing Janet Leigh, the actress who starred in Psycho. And now, Jessica will take on the role of actress Vera Miles, who played Lila Crane in Hitchcock’s classic. Anthony Hopkins plays Hitchcock, and Helen Mirren will play Hitchcock’s wife, Alma. Sounds pretty damn good.

The director is Sacha Gervasi, who once dated/knocked up Spice Girl Geri Halliwell. Oh yeah, he’s written some movies, too. Specifically, The Terminal.
James D’Acrcy, the actor from Madonna’s W.E., is reportedly up for the role of Anthony Perkins. You remember--the creepy guy who was kind of a mamma’s boy? Just a little?

And now for the scandal. Jessica is, of course, engaged to Justin Timberlake. And Justin Timberlake, according to Us Weekly “happens to count Johansson, 27, among his many conquests.” A friend told the mag: “They’ve hooked up several times over the years.”

Just last September, Timberlake was spotted visiting Scarlett’s apartment in NYC after a night of “hardcore flirting” at 1Oak.

Since then, Scarlett has reportedly moved on to ad exec Nate Naylor.
