Rocky Horror Picture Remake

You know nothing is sacred in the motion picture industry today not when there is an announcement of another cinematic horror classic getting remade by Michael Bay. Or when you hear that there is another low end direct to DVD sequel of a movie released some twenty years ago. And its not when a once genre friendly studio moves and buggers the release of one of the most anticipated films of the year based off one of the best stories from one of the greatest Masters of Horror.  It's none of those.

Nothing is sacred when one of the most bizarre, campy, throughly ridiculous movies ever conceived and made by mankind is remade. The 1975 Camp Cult Classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show is getting a redux according to the AFP. Oh yeah, you heard me...ROCKY HORROR GETS REMADE!

The original film featured Tim Curry in the ultimate camp performance, Susan Sarandon and Meat Loaf. The remake will be produced through MTV and Sky Movies and will be using the original film's screenplay. No cast or director has been attached yet. Executive Producer on the original Lou Adler will also be executive producer on the remake has this to say:

"So here we go again, with a new cast, believing that the Sky and MTV remake will add to the Rocky Horror phenomena."

Honestly, using the same bloody screenplay? I got one word for that: LAZY...besides actually remaking the film. This sounds more worthless than the remake of The Omen from 2006. We'll update you as more news comes in. No release date has been set for the movie.
