Rihanna Recreates Iconic 'Psycho' Shower Scene on 'Bates Motel' -- But There's a Twist!

18 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you haven’t watched Monday’s episode of Bates Motel.

Did Marion Crane meet her bloody fate on Bates Motel?

Rihanna returned as the iconic Psycho character on Monday’s episode of the A&E drama, titled “Marion,” but things got very twisted in the end.

Following a stormy evening’s drive (and super uncomfortable chat with Norman), Marion jumped into the shower in her Bates Motel room to clean up.

But unlike the 1960 movie, in which Janet Leigh’s version of the character met her untimely fate, she survived her bath -- though Bates Motel made sure to keep viewers waiting with bated breath as camera shots paid homage to the Alfred Hitchcock classic.

21 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

O’Shea Jackson, who most recently starred in N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, is officially in talks to join Godzilla sequel Godzilla: Kings of the Monsters.

Jackson played his father Ice Cube in 2015’s music biopic which received critical and commercial appeal.

23 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The cast of Warner Bros. and Legendary's highly-anticipated Godzilla: King of Monsters is still coming together, with another actor lining up a key role in the sequel. Straight Outta Compton star O'Shea Jackson Jr., the son of rapper/actor Ice Cube, has entered negotiations to play an unspecified role in this big-budget action thriller, that serves as a follow-up to the 2014 blockbuster Godzilla. While it remains to be seen how many more new characters will come aboard, it is believed that only one actor from the 2014 Godzilla will return.

Variety broke the news of this casting, and while no details were given for his character, he is just the latest to come aboard recently. We reported in January that Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown is making her feature film debut with Godzilla: King of Monsters, with Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga coming aboard to portray her character's father and mother, »

O’Shea Jackson Jr. Circling Key Role In Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

27 March 2017 2:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kong: Skull Island, the second entry into Legendary and Warner Bros.’ interconnected MonsterVerse, opened to a mighty $70 million at the Chinese box office this past weekend, bringing its global cume within touching distance of $400 million. And though it’s not quite on the level of, say, Beauty and the Beast or a tentpole Marvel movie, Legendary’s shared universe is shaping up nicely.

Thanks to the inclusion of a post-credits sequence, Skull Island also sets the stage for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Michael Dougherty’s 2019 sequel that has already drafted in the likes of Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) and Kyle Chandler of Bloodline and Manchester By the Sea fame. When pulled together, it makes for quite an exciting roster of talent, and Variety has learned today that O’Shea Jackson Jr., one of the many breakout stars of hit rap drama Straight Outta Compton, is »

NBC Buys Drama Script From ‘Bates Motel’ Ep, Star Freddie Highmore

15 March 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC has bought a drama script from “Bates Motel” executive producer Kerry Ehrin and star Freddie Highmore, Variety has learned.

Ehrin penned the script, titled “Long Distance,” with Highmore and Danielle Gelber producing and Universal as the studio.

“Long Distance” is an hourlong character drama that chronicles one couple’s unexpected, intercontinental relationship. Despite time zone challenges, jealousy-fueled social media deciphering, and troublesome autocorrecting, the show explores dating, the internet, how we communicate, and what love and romance really mean in our modern world.

The project reunites Ehrin and Highmore, who most recently worked together on A&E’s “Bates Motel,” currently airing its fifth and final season — the two recently sold a drama script to A&E. It’s also the second time Ehrin and Gelber have worked together, as Gelber picked up Ehrin’s first pilot when she was an executive at Fox, titled “Holiday.” “Long Distance” marks the first project for Gelber under her »
