An upcoming film following the making of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” is due out next year, and Scarlett Johansson will be making an appearance as Janet Leigh in the notorious shower scene.

The original film tells the tale of a secretary who runs away to get married after stealing money from her employer, only to get murdered by the owner of a hotel she stays in along the way. The violence in the film was the first of its kind, and shocked viewers.

Now, Sacha Gervasi directs a film chronicling the making of the original, centering on the relationship Hitchcock and his wife, Alma Reville, held, and the struggles behind making a film so controversial. Hitchcock will be played by Anthony Hopkins, and Reville by Helen Mirren.

Johansson’s role as Leigh in the shower scene reportedly took seven days to film.
