Fox's Rocky Horror remake to hit DVD this December with special extended cut

Rocky Horror Picture Show Fox

Fox's remake of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW premiered last night, and while it didn't pull GREASE: LIVE numbers, it did decent for the network and they've already announced a DVD release, boasting a special extended cut (whoop-dee-doo). Arriving on December 6th, the bonus features will include:

  • Extended Cut Featuring Deleted Scenes and Brad’s version of “Once in a While” sung by Ryan McCartan
  • Don’t Dream It, Make It: Celebrating “Rocky Horror”
  • Let’s Do The Time Warp Again: Comic-Con 2016
  • Laverne Cox Screen Test
  • Mick Rock Still Gallery

To be honest, I'm glad they're at least providing some solid features, because releases like this are usually pretty bare bones. I appeciate that they're putting effort into this, even if nobody needed a ROCKY HORROR remake.

A reimagining of the original movie, the two-hour event follows sweethearts JANET (Victoria Justice, “Victorious”) and BRAD (Ryan McCartan, “Liv & Maddie,” “Heathers the Musical”), who stumble upon DR. FRANK-N-FURTER’s (Emmy Award-nominated actress Laverne Cox, “Orange is the New Black”) bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious mad-scientist, is holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of ROCKY HORROR – a muscle-bound specimen created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.

Actor and singer Staz Nair (“Game of Thrones”) will star in the role of Rocky. Also featured in the event are AMERICAN IDOL alum Adam Lambert as EDDIE, Reeve Carney (“Penny Dreadful,” “Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark”) as RIFF RAFF, Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford (“Sylvia,” “You Can’t Take It With You,” “Masters of Sex”) as COLUMBIA, Christina Milian (“Grandfathered”) as MAGENTA, Ivy Levan as USHERETTE, Tony Award winner Ben Vereen (“Pippin”) as DR. EVERETT SCOTT and Emmy Award nominee Tim Curry, the original Frank-N-Furter, as the show’s CRIMINOLOGIST NARRATOR. Celebrating 40 years of theatrical distribution – longer than any other film in history – “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is one of the most popular films of all time, and still plays in movie theaters around the world.
