'Bates Motel' Star Can't Wait to Get Rihanna in Shower for Famous Scene

3 posts in this topic

Rihanna's gonna get all wet -- and probably (fake) bloody -- when she steps into the infamous "Psycho" shower, and her "Bates Motel" director is so psyched. 

Nestor Carbonell stars on the show, but will also be directing RiRi's upcoming episode where she plays Marion Crane ... the character in that legendary shower stabbing. TMZ got him out in L.A. -- walking his dog -- and tried to find out if he's going for a straight remake or putting a new twist on the scene. 

Check it out ... Nestor does spill at least one big deet.

“I read this article in which Rihanna said she was a fan of “Bates Motel,” executive producer Carlton Cuse explained. "We asked and she said yes. It was awesome. We’re really excited about it. It really feels very much like the version of the character that is different from the movie."

In the film “Psycho,” which serves as the loose inspiration for the series, Marion Crane checks into the “Bates Motel,” where she has the misfortune of crossing paths with motel owner Norman Bates. Her shower scene — where she gets stabbed to death — has become one of film’s most iconic.

Cuse also said that the Marion character is one they wanted to make sure to include before wrapping the A&E series next year. “We wanted her to very much be her own character and we felt in order to do that we needed to find someone who was very, very special to play Marion.” Also on the panel with Cuse were executive producer Kerry Ehrin and stars Vera Farmiga (Norma), Freddie Highmore (Norman), Nestor Carbonell (Alex) and Max Thieriot (Dylan).

“Bates Motel” will begin production this fall in Vancouver and will return for a final season in 2017 on A&E.

I've tried to watch it but tbh this is one of the most boring series I've ever seen... Guess I'll only watch the episode with Rih :(
