Fox to remake The Rocky Horror Picture Show as 2-hour TV special, for film's 40th anniversary


Fox is working on a TV remake of the quintessential cult film The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975). Let's do the time warp again?

Tentatively titled The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event, Kenneth Ortega (High School Musical) is at the helm with executive producers Gail Berman and Lou Adler, producers of the original movie that, of course, was based on a 1973 musical theater show by Richard O'Brien. The made-for-TV version, if it happens, is meant to be pegged on the film's 40th anniversary this year.
