MTV Seeks Rocky Horror Remake
Yes, you unfortunately read that title correctly: MTV is seriously planning to remake the 1975 cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
While I cannot deny how popular musicals have become (i.e. Mamma Mia!, High School Musical, Hairspray), are there not already tons of other musicals to tamper with other than this one? Can producers possibly more cold-hearted than I thought?
On the upside (yes, there’s actually an upside) to this, the executive producer of the original, Lou Adler, is attached to the project, along with BermanBraun and Fox Television Studios. They also plan on using the original screenplay (thankfully!); however, they may incorporate songs not included in the original (what?).

No word yet on casting, although Adler has pointed out when he wants the film to be released: “I’d like to see it shown a year from this coming Halloween, but that’s up to MTV.”
Let’s be serious—you cannot beat a cast that includes Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, and Meatloaf! You just can’t.
