Rocky Horror Picture Show to Be Remade

Let's Do the Time Warp Again?

It may be "just a jump to your left/ Then a step to your right," but I can't help but think that this might be a giant step to the back. That's right, news surfaced today that a The Rocky Horror Picture Show remake is in the works. The MTV network is partnering with Lou Adler, who produced the 1975 film, for a remake that will feature the original screenplay of Jim Sharman and Richard O'Brien, with the possibility of a new song or two.

As someone who is a big fan of the original film and the stage production (yes, I saw Luke Perry as Brad!) this news makes me a little sad, especially as it's coming from the network that brought us Carmen: A Hip Hopera. Regardless, the original is such a cult classic, and Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, and Meatloaf are so iconic in their respective roles. Seriously, who else but Tim Curry could sing "Sweet Transvestite?" Alan Cumming perhaps? How do you feel about this news? Are you ready to do the time warp again?

So what jerkoff came up with this idea?? Besides it being an EXTREMELY bad idea it's also the most primal insult!! This is f-ing MTV's way of saying that those who did the original did not know what they were doing. Feh! The only ones with their head up their collective asses are the dumbshits at MTV.

i don't know if i'll be able to stomach a remake. there have been so many recently that haven't lived up to the original that it's painful. i wonder when people are going to get original ideas. it's all remakes/sequels and reality shows these days. oh well - i'm sure that the true original RHPS fans will stay true and not adopt the idea of a new one.

Why can't Hollywood get some original ideas. I'm so sick and tired of remakes, especially in this case. I know if I go on about how horrid I think it is that MTV is going to remake RHPS I'm going to wind up offending many people. I will however say MTV is an absolute joke. This is just a damn shame.

I am all for remakes usually, but this is one that just shouldn't be touched.

LOL at OChottie!! brilliant! but seriously, this is the most depressing thing i have heard in a very long time. i cant understand why lou would think of doing such a thing? :( there is NO ONE that could play frank like tim curry... not to mention the rest of the cast. rocky horror is sacred and needs to be protected. is it possible to start a petition of some sort? anyone know how? we need to stop this from happening!!!

by the time our civilization dies we will have beaten to death and squeezed until dry any and every remotely good idea until our entertainment industry is nothing more than road kill.

NO! I am so sick of them rehashing crap because nobody has a damn clue how to be original anymore. I adored this movie as a kid..my friends and I would pile into a car, head to the theater...and indulge ourselves in this movie regularly. Sometimes in costume. Sometimes with toast and newspapers... Crap can't they leave ANYTHING alone? While they're at it, if we just INSIST on remaking what should be respected and left alone, why don't we ask frikkin' Coldplay to re-record Hotel California? Or no, no wait...Singin' In The Rain feat. Justin Timberlake and Fergie. ANYTHING ELSE YOU PEOPLE WANT TO SCREW UP? ........ARGH!!!! /endrant

Yeah, stupid idea. It works because it's cheap and no one knows what they're in, what it's going to become, so it's charming. And Meat Loaf and Tim Curry are irreplaceable. WIth a bunch of knowingness, it would be ghastly - the jokes/songs/plot are all pretty ropey.

If it was anyone other than MTV I might not be so completely annoyed with this idea. Of all people, get the WORST to redo a cult classic... HORRIBLE idea. Can't you just picture Zac Efron, Miley Cyrus, Heidi and Spencer...?

Ugh, I have the urge to hurl. A part of me died when I read this. Nothing can ever beat the original, especially when you see it with the live shadow cast, it's amazing!

As an onstage player on many occasions, how this would even be a "good" idea is unfathomable to me. My post would be far too long if I don't get off my high horse now. Bottom line, don't effing do it!

This is blasphemy! I'm not usually a proponent of violence (ok so that's a lie, I am) but this seems like an appropriate time for it. Expect the unexpected MTV!
