Fox has decided to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1975 cult musical and midnight mainstay The Rocky Horror Picture Show with a TV remake. The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event will be a 2-hour special, which is now in development. Original producer Lou Adler is coming back to executive produce alongside Gail Berman and Kenny Ortega, the later of which will direct and choreograph for Fox 21 TV Studios.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event will 'reimagine' the campy horror movie, which, 40 years after its release, continues to play in theaters across the globe all year long. It holds the record for longest theatrical distribution frame for any film in history. A remake has long been in the works. While a movie remake was considered, the TV event was originally set up at Fox in 2002, back when executive producer Gail Berman was president of the Network. The plan was to »
Fox is developing an event special around “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” the enduring midnight-movie classic that has been playing for 40 years.
Kenny Ortega is on board to direct and choreograph. Gail Berman is producing through her Jackal Group with Fox 21 Television Studios. Berman has long been looking to do a “Rocky Horror” revival — she set a similar project in motion more than a decade ago when she was entertainment president at Fox.
The “Rocky Horror” revival is in the early stages of development and is cast-contigent. It is described as a “two-hour event” special. Lou Adler, producer of the original 1975 pic starring Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon, is also on board as an exec producer.
Ortega, repped by Paradigm, is a natural choice to helm the project, given his background »

Are you ready to do the time warp again? Fox is reviving "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in what's being called a "two-hour event" TV special in honor of the cult classic's 40th anniversary. But can anything ever be more "special" than the 1975 film?
Kenny Ortega, who is probably best known for the "High School Musical" movies, will direct and choreograph the remake. Variety said the special is in the early stages of development and is cast-contingent. They'll never find anyone who can really fill the shoes of Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, and Barry Bostwick, but people are always doing their own versions of "Rocky Horror" -- from "Glee" to local productions everywhere -- so we can just consider this another one.
Do you have casting suggestions for Brad, Janet, Dr. Frank-n-Furter and company or do you hope they never find the right actors because they should leave this classic alone? »
