    You are a bit silly- it’s not a remake, it’s the story behind the scenes

    really? Says:

    Any Movie with her sucks and just bc of her. I saw New years eve not bc of her but anyway as soon she is in anything it looks unserious and stupid just like she in real life is. So I don´t understand this people who give her any part to ruin the movie. I would have been curious to see it but now NO THANKS.

    Are some of you people just stupid or just retarded?!

    It’s NOT a f-ing remake of Psycho. It’s a film about the making of Psycho. I thought people could read nowadays.

    Why would they cast the role of Hitchcock (who only has a cameo) or his wife if they were remaking Psycho???!!!

    Jake: We already understand what you’re trying to tell us. The point is that it seems senseless, weird and kind of silly to make a movie about the making of Psycho. Just see the original movie and be done with it.

    Not gonna hate on her,but yea I’m disappointed. Jessica only suits action roles,or just an eye candy role. who is she playing, can’t be the lead in Psycho cuz its a known fact Hitchcock loved Blondes. Maybe like an assistant. idk I personally don’t want her in this movie.

    its not totally senseless. I personally am a huge Hitchcock fan, and I want to see this movie. I mean Hitchcock was going through some trouble when making this movie, Vertigo released previously and was a huge failure,hard to believe now since its a classic but then it was box office bomb. He blamed it on James Stewart and his age. James was a favourite of Hitchcock after Vertigo the never worked again. They had a fallout. He could barely afford to make Psycho, reasons why its in black and white is because they were on a tight budget, less know fact. I find it interesting, I am a huge fan so it maybe be biased. Yes not impressed with the cast but whatever. Scarlett I think will have a 2 minute role,same w/ Jessica
    another fun fact, is during the making of Psycho Hitchcock would call Anthony Perkins who played Norman Bates “Master Bates” on set, cheesy immature but it made me laugh when I read it.
