MTV is developing a remake of 1975 cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, reports Variety.

Lou Adler, executive producer of the original film, is partnering with BermanBraun and Fox Television Studios on the new rendition.

The new version will use the original screenplay by Jim Sharman and Richard O'Brien but may also include music not featured in the original.

The director and casting decisions have yet to be announced. The original starred Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick and Meatloaf.

Because there's no such thing as originality in Hollywood anymore.

... and here I thought remaking Nightmare on Elm Street was a bad idea.

Some movies are sacred, goddammit.

you gotta be fucking kidding me. they'll probably have somebody totally inappropriate playing Frank, like David Duchovny.

he looks more like a transexual than a drag queen here. I love that they said he was from Oakland because I live in Oakland!

Yeah, I heard about this, and it pissed me off. It's my favourite movie off all time. I know it off by heart. And I refuse to believe that a remake is a good idea.

I also heard a rumour that Susan Sarandon's daughter was in the running to play Janet. Ugh.

The original is just too crazy and weird and awesome to ever be redone! GUH. New ideas, ANYONE?
