New Promo & Trailer Of Rihanna As Marion Crane In ‘Bates Motel’ + SWV In Talks For Biopic + Tia Mowry Hints At ‘Sister, Sister’ Reboot
Rihanna is about to check in “Bates Motel” as Marion Crane and we’ve got new promo pics and a new trailer before her debut. Plus, SWV confirms they are in talks for a biopic and Tia Mowry hints at a “Sister, Sister” reboot. Get it all inside...
By now you know Rihanna will be tapping into her actress side to play the iconic role of Marion Crane in the final season of “Bates Motel.” The show, which is currently airing its final season, is loosely based on the 1987 TV film. Now, Rih Rih will bring Norman Bates’ most famous victim to life in episode 5, which is set to air Monday, March 20th.
Before we see the Bajan beauty in action, a new promo shot was just released along with a teaser for her episode debut. In the new shot above, the “Work” singer is seen trekking through the rain as she makes her way inside the hotel to check in. By the way, it's reported Rih has a sex scene in the season as well.
Below are a few other previous shots of the red haired bad gal:

In movie news...
R&B heads will be excited to hear this.
One of your fave R&B girl groups will tell their story to stardom in a new biopic. Yes, SWV is in talks to serve up a project where they will share everything that went down behind-the-scenes as they navigated the music industry in the 90s. And we all know, there was a lot of shady ish going down in the industry back then (and still does). I.E. TLC, Michel'le, Toni Braxton, and New Edition.
After Cheryl “Coko” Gamble, Leanne “LeLee” Lyons and Tamera “Taj” Johnson-George starred in their own reality show in 2013, rumors about a biopic started circulating, but nothing had been confirmed. Now, they’re at least working on making it happen.
“We’re actually in talks [for] a SWV biopic, so stay tuned,” Coko told HipHopDX. “There’s so much that people don’t know.”
LeLee chimed in, “Everyone’s interested.”
Sounds like it’s really going to happen. We’re sure New Edition’s epic biopic put some momentum on getting the project done once and for all. And we’re more than happy about, of course, if its done right.
In more good news...
Biopics and reboots are certainly the most recent trend in movies and television. And it appears one of our faves may possibly be making a comeback.
While on the promo trail for her new cookbook “Whole New You,” Tia Mowry Hardrict has been dropping hints that a “Sister, Sister” reboot could be coming sooner rather than later.
Today, she appeared on the “Wendy Williams Show” to cook up a tasty recipe from her cookbook and she also spilled a little tea about “Sister, Sister” possibly returning to television.
“I would love to do a ‘Sister, Sister’ reboot," Tia told Wendy. “I will say, it’s closer than ever to making that happen. We’re trying to make it no longer a rumor. And everybody’s one board so far, so we’ll see.”
Tia also talked about her run-in with Tamar Braxton at the airport and said she and her husband Vince Herbert were nothing short of being SUPER sweet. Peep the clip above.
Yesterday, the mom chef also stopped by “The Chew” where she talked about the possible “Sister, Sister” reboot. She said, "We’re definitely trying to make it no longer a rumor. Let’s just say that and we’re closer than ever.”
Peep the clip below:
