Did You Know?
In issue #57 of Fangoria Magazine, screenwriter Charles Edward Pogue
revealed the plot of his original script. In this version, it was Duane who was the killer and had intentionally come to the Bates Motel because he was obsessed with Norman. Maureen was a neurotic psychologist who had come to the motel to replace Dr. Raymond from the previous film -- Pogue had intended to cast original victim Janet Leigh
in the role. Universal rejected these ideas, arguing that Bates had to be the killer and Leigh was wrong for the film. However, Maureen's actions remained virtually unchanged, her character was merely changed to a young nun. See more
