Fox wants to do the "Time Warp," again. The network announced a new TV version of TheRocky Horror Picture Show is in the works, E! News has confirmed. Unlike it's upcoming Grease musical, Fox's Rocky Horror won't be done live.
Kenny Ortega is behind the new two-hour flick. He's directing, executive producing and choreographing the movie. Original film producer Lou Adler and Gail Berman are also on broad, but no new writer is attached. The network plans to stick with the original 1973 script from Jim Sharman and Richard O'Brien.
Susan Sarandon, Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick and O'Brien starred in the original film.
Fox's new take is set to coincide with the movie's 40th anniversary. As previously mentioned, Fox is working on a live Grease musical with Vanessa Hudgens and Julianne Hough. Glee previously paid tribute to Rocky Horror with an entire episode devoted to the cult-hit flick.
A new Rocky Horror is just the latest revival for Fox. The network brought back Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer in 24: Live Another Day to ratings success. There's rumblings of more Prison Break and the network recently confirmed The X-Files will return for six episodes with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back as Mulder and Scully. X-Files creator Chris Carter is also attached to the new episodes.
No premiere date or cast has been announced for Fox's Rocky Horror Picture show movie event.
