Rihanna Features In The New "Bates Motel" Trailer!

POSTED BY TIFFANY WALLIS

It has been revealed that sexy, superstar Rihanna, is going to star as ‘Marion Crane’, from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, in the ultimate last season of the hit show, Bates Motel.

The character, Marion Crane, was originally played by Janet Leigh many years ago, and is iconic for its famous shower scene. The Hitchcock drama, based on the 1960's film, is sure to have a crazy final season and with pop sensation, Rihanna starring in it, is likely to have a huge following. 

Rihanna makes her appearance towards the end of the trailer and little is known about her fate. However, we do see her enter the hotel (looking as fierce as ever!), asking for a room and heading up there to settle in. 

The trailer has a suspicious end as Norman Bates watches Rihanna’s character, Marion, have a shower, through a peephole. The scary music brings the trailer to an end but did we mention, its super creepy?!

Producers of the show have commented that Rihanna’s version of the hit character is going to be a lot more developed than in the past. 

They told Entertainment Weekly: “We're taking threads of that story and definitely using them so it's recognisable, it's just where we go with it is very different…It's tough to be in a situation where you’re in love with a guy, and for whatever reason, he keeps stalling. You still have all this hot sex with him, and he's saying he loves you, but he's stalling. The internal story of that, for a woman, is a really interesting one. We never really got to see that. In Psycho, you just see the outside of that more. It was trying to do a story about a contemporary woman with some edge, with some expectations, who isn't perfect, who isn't always perfectly sweet, who is in that situation, but we're rooting for her to get what she wants”. 

The show is set to air on A&E on February 20th, so make sure you stay tuned. In the meantime, check out the latest trailer, featuring Rihanna.
