Scarlett Johansson is getting her Psycho on in the upcoming drama Hitchcock. In the film, the actress plays Janet Leigh opposite Anthony Hopkins as the legendary director. We've been hearing about the movie for months, and now we have a glimpse at the finished product.

Hitchcock is based on Stephen Rebello’s 1990 book, Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. According to EW, the film charts more than the progress of his famous thriller -- it gives a behind-the-scenes look at his marriage with wife Alma (Helen Mirren).

“I think Alma accepts Hitch for exactly who he is and knows his idiosyncrasies and his crazy predilections,” revealed Hitchcock director Sacha Gervasi. “She allows him to have his obsessions and I think our movie is about a point where they sort of escalate. Their marriage is absolutely touched off by his increasing obsessions with these women, but they were ultimately fantasy relationships. Hitch lived in this world of fantasy; to him it was more real than real life. And I think Alma was able to kind of, in this film at least, smash it down a little bit.”

Aside from Hopkins' jaw-dropping makeover, we tip our hat to co-star James D'Arcy. The British actor's striking resemblance to Anthony Perkins is uncanny. It's almost eerie at first glance.

The remaining cast consists of Jessica Biel as Vera Miles, Michael Stuhlbarg as Lew Wasserman and Toni Collette as Peggy Robertson.

Hitchcock opens in select theaters Nov. 23.
