See Scarlett Johansson As Janet Leigh In Hitchcock!

Actress is a dead ringer for iconic Psycho actress in new biopic...

A still image has been released from the forthcoming Hitchcock movie - showing Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh.

With her hair in a blonde bob, 27-year-old ScarJo looks the double of actress Leigh as she appeared in Psycho - the 1960 movie which pushed the boundaries of sex and violence on the big screen.

The new film covers the making of Psycho and stars Hollywood heavyweight Anthony Hopkins as the legendary director Alfred Hitchcock. The movie apparently focuses on Hitchcock's relationship with his wife during the production of Psycho.

It features Helen Mirren, Toni Collette and Danny Huston in supporting roles and is scheduled for release in UK cinemas next February.

ScarJo is reported to be keen to appear in an Avengers sequel.
