Now this might go down in history as one of the worst ideas in Hollywood history; remaking The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I mean, seriously, is this necessary? The original has been annoying me since it was released in 1975, why do we need another take on it?
Nevertheless, Variety reports that original executive producer Lou Adler is teaming up with BermanBraun and Fox TV to make it happen. The Rocky Horror redux will utilize the same script as the original, but may feature some new songs. No word on who will direct or star yet.
The hope, Adler tells the trade, is to have this new version of Rocky done in time for Halloween of next year. I guess as long as no one out there gets the bright idea to do live re-enactments of this version on Saturdays at midnight across the country, it may not be so bad…
