Tim Curry returning to the Frankenstein Place for Rocky Horror remake

Tim Curry is returning to his Transsexual, Transylvania roots for Fox’s remake of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW.

Curry (currently age 69) won’t be laced into a corset again to reprise the role he made famous - Dr. Frank N. Furter. However, I have confirmed with the network that Curry will be playing the criminologist narrator, originally played by Charles Gray in the cult film, for Kenny Ortega’s redo.

There has been some question about Curry’s health in recent years, following a stroke he suffered back in 2012. But after making a rare public appearance last year at The Actors Fund’s 19th Annual Tony Awards viewing party, it would appear his recovery has been going well enough that both he and the production are game for making this happen. And while there will be plenty of doubters who shake their heads at the prospect of a ROCKY HORROR remake, having Curry involved in some respect is pretty cool, no matter what.

Can't imagine who they think wants this

This wasn't a "movie" in and of itself, but it was a phenomenon. I expect that 20 years from now, the midnight showings will STILL be playing the original, and not this remake.

cool news! Too bad it seems the IT remake seems to have fallen through. I was hoping Tim Curry would make an appearance in the film in some way.

I pray that Tim Curry will live way past age 69, which seem to be the death number this year. I always enjoy his performance.

Don't forget his work as Pennywise (It) and Darkness (Legend). Such amazing diverse work.

Well...
He simply CAN'T do wrong...
Even in average or mediocre films, he's great (Congo, The Shadow, Ferngully...) !
But It (Technically TV, but who cares ?!), Legend, Clue and, of course the awesomely and totally un-REMAKEable RHPS are some of his favorite performances, as far as I'm concerned... Until I remember other films of his.
AND, If Jarvis had been a human in the (modern) MCU, he would have totally nailed the part !

I used to watch Clue over and over and over again as a kid. Loved that movie and still do. One of a kind film and another favorite Tim Curry character for me.

It's too bad they don't make movies like Clue anymore.
