MTV Plots Rocky Horror Remake

Movie bosses at MTV have announced plans to remake cult classic THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW.

The new film will use the original screenplay by Jim Sharman and Richard O’Brien and be overseen by Lou Adler – the executive producer on the 1975 hit, which starred Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon.

Although casting decisions have yet to be made, Adler hopes the picture will be ready in time for October 2009.

He tells Daily Variety, “I’d like to see it shown a year from this coming Halloween, but that’s up to MTV.”
