Rocky Horror Remake? Let's Not Do The Time Warp Again!

Holy Frank-N-Furter, Transylvanians! According to the informed sources at Deadline Hollywood, Glee creator Ryan Murphy is discussing a remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the 1975 midnight movie musical about sexual liberation starring Susan Sarandon in her bra and panties and Tim Curry in his bustier and garter belt.

Holy Frank-N-Furter, Transylvanians! According to the informed sources at Deadline Hollywood, Glee creator Ryan Murphy is discussing a remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the 1975 midnight movie musical about sexual liberation starring Susan Sarandon in her bra and panties and Tim Curry in his bustier and garter belt. (What Deadline does not report is whether the offer was made before or after Murphy filmed the "Rocky Horror"-themed episode of Glee to be broadcast next Tuesday.) I''m all for a remake if a filmmaker can update it or put a new spin on it, but unless this one's going to be about passing gay-marriage legislation in Transylvania, I'm not feeling it. You? Your suggestions on how to freshen this musty relic?
