I’m still a bit uncertain about this one. If there’s any film in history that should remained untouched, it’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The movie is so amazing it transcends the cult classic moniker. It’s amazing. And FOX remade it for television.
We’ve got a new promo clip to check out, and we’ll include the first trailer to drop as well. You can let us know if you’re diggin’ this one or not!
Now here’s the first trailer to drop:
FOX is doing the Time Warp with a brand-new production of the 1975 cult classic THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, set to air the fall of 2016. A reimagining of the original movie, the two-hour event follows sweethearts JANET (Victoria Justice) and BRAD (Ryan McCartan), who stumble upon DR. FRANK-N-FURTER’s (Emmy Award-nominated actress Laverne Cox) bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious mad scientist, is holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of ROCKY HORROR – a muscle-bound specimen created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires. Actor and singer Staz Nair (“Game of Thrones”) will star in the role.
Also featured in the event are “AMERICAN IDOL” alum Adam Lambert as EDDIE, Reeve Carney as RIFF RAFF, Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford as COLUMBIA, Christina Milian as MAGENTA, Ivy Levan as USHERETTE, Tony Award winner Ben Vereen as DR. EVERETT SCOTT, and Emmy Award nominee Tim Curry, the original Frank-N-Furter, as the show’s CRIMINOLOGIST NARRATOR.
Celebrating 40 years of theatrical distribution – longer than any other film in history – The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of the most popular films of all time and still plays in movie theaters around the world. THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is executive produced by Lou Adler (Grammy Award winner, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and executive producer of the original The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Gail Berman (former President of Fox Broadcasting), and Kenny Ortega (Emmy Award-winning director and choreographer). THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is based upon the original screenplay by Jim Sharman and Richard O’Brien with lyrics and music by Richard O’Brien.
