Do the Time Warp…?

FOX is developing a TV remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, of all things. A two-hour “event special”, it’s tentatively titled The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event and will be executive produced by Gail Berman of The Jackal Group, Lou Adler, who produced the original movie, and Kenny Ortega, who will also direct and choreograph.

Rocky Horror is the movie with the longest-running theatrical release, at 40 years with no signs of stopping.

Berman, who is a longtime fan of the movie, was behind a previous failed attempt at a revival at FOX. The plan for the remake is to stick faithfully to the text and score, but “reimagine the story visually”. No information on the casting as of yet. I can’t imagine who could possibly match Tim Curry, though.
