Rocky Horror Picture Show

20th Century Fox

Do we really need to do the time warp again?

MTV thinks so. The music net is resurrecting Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Brad, Janet, Riff Raff and the rest of the singin' and dancin' weirdos of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, turning everyone's favorite midnight musical comedy into a TV movie.

The Rocky redux will feature the original campy 1975 screenplay by Jim Sharman and Richard O'Brien, according to Variety, along with the classic soundtrack for the two-hour teleflick. There might be a couple of new songs written specifically for the TV take, which MTV is hoping to have on the air next year.

No word yet on a director or cast, but it seems unlikey original stars Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Patricia Quinn or Meat Loaf will be meeting over at the Frankenstein place for another go-round.

The Rocky faithful are, predictably, already taking to the Interwebs to grouse about the redo. What do you think, great idea or some doo-doo waiting to happen? Sound off in the comments.
