Rhianna to play Marion Crane in the fifth and final season of Bates Motel

Another show out in force at the San Diego Comic Con is Bates Motel and with the recent announcement that the fifth season would be the last came the confirmation that the show would be heading straight into Psycho territory for its last year. What's more, pop star and occasional actress Rihanna will be playing the iconic role of Marion Crane as Bates Motel tackles the infamous shower murder scene. Janet Leigh of course played Marion in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho upon which the show is based.

On the panel, the show’s creators Kerry Ehrin and Carlton Cuse made the following statement...

"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." - A&E
