Breaks my heart to bump my last post (..it really does)..but this needed to be posted. o.O The horror.

LONDON (AFP) - "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" is to be remade over 30 years after the camp classic first hit cinema screens, producers said Wednesday.

The original 1975 film was a horror parody featuring the adventures of a newly engaged couple who find themselves caught up in the bizarre world of Frank-N-Furter, a "sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania."

Based on a British stage show, the film starred Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Richard O'Brien and singer Meat Loaf, featuring songs including "Time Warp" and has grossed some 140 million dollars (94 million euros) in the US alone.

The cast this time round has not yet been decided, but the remake will use the original screenplay and is being revived in a partnership deal for MTV in the US and Sky Movies in Britain, who confirmed the move.

The film's executive producer Lou Adler, who is reprising his role from the original, said: "So here we go again, with a new cast, believing that the Sky and MTV remake will add to the Rocky Horror phenomenon."

If Richard O' Brian isn't in it, it won't be worth watching.

Yeah I saw this and was horrified. It seems the writer himself isn't too pleased either and it wouldn't surprise me if he went to court to stop it. I haven't even seen the original but I don't want another one to ruin the experience...

(yes, I'm still a Rocky Horror virgin.... *sheepish*)

...omg you need to watch it! NEED. NEEEEED.

But yeah I didn't think he would be. Hopefully he can put a stop to it. You just don't remake cult classics. Defeats the object somewhat...

Ah I hate it when they do this to awesome movies -_- why do people feel the need to re-make films when they were great to begin with o_O? Still if they want it to work (which I doubt it will :P) they need to top the original cast because you can't beat a sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania like Tim Curry XDD

I know! :( It doesn't feel dated at all...I'm surprised it's as old as it is tbh.

And yeah, Tim Curry or bust. XD

if Keanu Reeves does it, as rumored, I'll still have to see it for the sheer LOLZ. And Keanu's butt.
