The film follows the legendary director's struggle to bring the most chilling movie ever made to life on the big screen.

Biel is set to play Vera Miles, the actress who portrayed Lila Crane in the classic 1960 horror thriller and managed to escape from motel owner Norman Bates.

Johansson takes on the role of Janet Leigh, who played the doomed shower victim Marion Crane. Hopkins stars as Hitchcock and Helen Mirren as his wife, Alma Reville.

Biel will next be seen starring opposite Colin Farrell in the remake of "Total Recall," which hits theaters in August.
