Get ready for The Rocky Horror Picture Show remake…

April 10th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Is there anyone alive who doesn’t know The Rocky Horror Picture Show? We don’t think so…

And yes, it’s 40 years old, but it’s a cult monster so why would anyone want to remake it?!

Well, it seems that Fox are planning a two hour event special which has a cast-contingent order: “That means that the project will go forward if the producers are able to get Fox’s approval on the casting choices.”

The project is being overseen by executive producer Gail Berman and Lou Adler, producer of the 1975 original. Kenny Ortega is also set to choreograph and direct the remake for Fox 21 TV Studios.

It seems that “the dialogue and the songs from The Rocky Horror Picture Show will be relatively intact, but the story will be “greatly reimagined… visually.””

Let’s do the time warp.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
