RiRi takes on Janet Leigh’s iconic role
With Bates Motel going into its fifth and final season it’s barrelling into the film that the show is based on. Rihanna is set to fill the role of Marion Crane, the blonde woman murdered in the shower in the original film of Psycho.
The role will see Rihanna delve into the background of Marion Crane, a woman who winds up at the hotel after stealing money from her boss to be with her boyfriend. Producer Kerry Ehrin spoke about developing the character beyond what was seen in Psycho, ‘The internal story of that, for a woman, is a really interesting one.’
