In addition, it’s been revealed that pop star Rihanna will be checking into the Bates Motel as Marion Crane, the ill-fated character that Janet Leigh first played in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho feature film.
According to TVLine, Rihanna had previously said that she was a big fan of the series. This prompted producers to reach out to her about the role.
Executive producer Carlton Cuse has said that the cast and crew plan to put their own take on the parts from the iconic film. He said, “We will be colliding with certain events in the narrative of the film… but it would be boring to just recreate Psycho.”
