RiRi’s role was confirmed last summer during San Diego Comic-Con, when she announced she would take on the role of Marion Crane in the infamous shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 cult classic film Psycho. Although the original character was played by Janet Leigh, Rihanna’s version will be much more developed and different.

Executive producer Kerry Ehrin told Entertainment Weekly:

“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. It’s tough to be in a situation where you’re in love with a guy, and for whatever reason, he keeps stalling. You still have all this hot sex with him, and he’s saying he loves you, but he’s stalling. The internal story of that, for a woman, is a really interesting one. We never really got to see that. In Psycho, you just see the outside of that more. It was trying to do a story about a contemporary woman with some edge, with some expectations, who isn’t perfect, who isn’t always perfectly sweet, who is in that situation, but we’re rooting for her to get what she wants.”

The series’ fifth season will kick off Feb. 20 on A&E. Peep the trailer below:
