Go behind the scenes with Fox's Rocky Horror as they work to honor the fans

Rocky Horror Picture Show Fox Laverne Cox Victoria Justice

For a couple blissful weeks, I was so preoccupied with the likes of BLAIR WITCH that I forgot Fox was remaking THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. Well, reality has struck once more in the form of a behind-the-scenes video showing the cast and crew putting it all together, describing how they hope they can properly honor the fans of the original film. 

At the very least, they seem genuinely sincere about their intentions, which is more than I can say about the vast majority of remakes around these here parts. Check it out for yourself below!

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.

ROCKY HORROR will take the stage once more on October 20th.

Extra Tidbit: Do you think this has the slightest chance of recapturing the original magic?
