Rihanna made the announcement via a video message delivered at Comic Con over the weekend.
Though Rihanna is currently on tour in France, that didn’t stop her from announcing her role on the A&E drama, “Bates Motel” which follows the lives of Norman and Nora Bates prior to events depicted in the 1960 movie
Marion Crane, originally played by Janet Leigh, was the secretary famously stabbed to death in the shower in the original Alfred Hitchcock movie
According to executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin, “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.”
