As much as we think FOX’s remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show is (probably) a bad idea, we’re happy to hear this piece of news…

The original Dr Frank N Furter and FTN favourite Tim Curry, is set to appear in the two hour production later this year.

This time out Curry will be the criminologist narrator, played by Charles Gray in the original 1975 classic. Frank N Furter will this time be played by Orange Is the New Black’s Laverne Cox.

Adam Lambert, Victoria Justice, Ryan McCartan and Reeve Carney will all also star.

We really don’t see the need… to point. But hey, Tim Curry, am I right?

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….
