The fifth and FINAL season of "Bates Motel" kicks off on the 20th of this month, and we're finally ready to meet Marion Crane. She's the victim in the infamous SHOWER SCENE from the original "Psycho".
She was played by JANET LEIGH in the movie . . . but on the show, she'll be played by RIHANNA.
"Entertainment Weekly" just posted a few pictures, and a video preview that gives us a quick look at Rihanna as Marion. (Check it out here.)
Now, you pretty much have to assume she'll die in a shower . . . but that doesn't mean everything will happen like it did in the movie.
One of the producers says, quote, "We're taking threads of that story and definitely using them so it's recognizable, it's just where we go with it is very different."
That'll include fleshing out Rihanna's character and making her, quote, "a contemporary woman with some edge, with some expectations, who isn't perfect . . . but we're rooting for her to get what she wants."
