Rocky Horror remake

Say it isn't so... oh sigh... MTV has signed a deal to remake the classic 1975 campy cult musical Rocky Horror Picture Show.

A couple of good things to note before being shaken and upset about more of your favorites being updated for the kids. The original executive producer Lou Adler is onboard the remake. And according to Variety the "Two-hour remake will use the original screenplay by Jim Sharman and Richard O'Brien (aka Riff Raff) but may also include music not featured in the original."

No word on casting or timeframe as of yet, but Adler has indicated that he'd like it to move quickly and says he'd "like to see it shown a year from this coming Halloween, but that's up to MTV,"

I really try to be open minded about remakes, but I really love The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and I'm just not sure I can get behind this... Lets see who they cast and go from there.
