Vera Farmiga has joined Bates Motel.

The Source Code actress will play Norma Bates, mother of Norman Bates, in A&E's new drama, reports Deadline.

Bates Motel is a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's horror classic Psycho, following Norman Bates's early years and his relationship with his mother.

Norma Bates is said to be "passionate, and compelling, a smart, multidimensional character who is always capable of surprising us".

Speaking about Farmiga's involvement with the project, Carlton Cuse - who serves as a showrunner with Kerry Ehrin - said: "She is a phenomenal talent who has demonstrated incredible range and intelligence in a number of landmark film roles, and we couldn't be more excited to have her join our project."

Back in July, A&E gave a series order to Bates Motel, which is expected to premiere in 2013 with ten episodes.
