    Jessica Biel is getting hitched.

    The Hollywood star will join Scarlett Johansson in Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, a film following the legendary director's struggle to bring the most chilling movie ever made to life on the big screen.

    So does she fall prey to Anthony Perkins' deranged motel owner–manager, Norman Bates?

    Fortunately for her, no. Instead, per Deadline, Biel will essay the role of Vera Miles, the actress who played Lila Crane in the classic 1960 horror thriller and managed to escape from Bates in Psycho's finale.

    Alas, Johansson isn't so lucky. She gets to play Janet Leigh and, take after take, recreate the infamous shower scene in which Leigh's character, Lila's sister Marion Crane, is stabbed to death.

    Anthony 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.

    Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, directed by Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil), is slated to start filming later this year.
