Rihanna has been casted as the newest addition to the psycho-thriller, Bates Motel. At Comic-Con in San Diego, the producers of Bates Motel announced that Rihanna will join the cast as Marion Crane, one of Norman Bates’ final victims in the iconic shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s film.
“We wanted to thrust the iconic role into a contemporary spotlight and redefine it in a meaningful and exciting new way. We also heard Rihanna was a fan of the show, and we were huge fans of hers, so it was the perfect collision of creativity and fate.” executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin explained.
Rihanna confirmed the casting in a pre-recorded video sent to the San Diego event. Watch the video here. The final season of “Bates Motel” will air in 2017.
