So I murdered your family, because I hate the Rocky Horror Picture Show

They're going to remake the Rocky Horror Picture Show. No, really:

Lou Adler, executive producer on the original film, will return in the same role.

"The Rocky Horror phenomenon has a life of its own that has reincarnated itself in numerous ways since its birth," he said.

He said the original film would continue to be enjoyed "by new fans and old alike".

Jim Sharman, who co-wrote the original screenplay and directed the film, said: "The original has some qualities that can't be reproduced but a remake could have its own very different strengths and qualities."

Apparently, they have no choice but to actually remake the movie, because their original plan - of just taking the money straight from the gullible - was ruled a no-no by the legal department.

The original movie still remains popular, with screenings often sold out to audiences consisting of people who thought it was the one with the singing venus fly trap, and men who blurted out "I'm taking you to Rocky Horror" when their partners arrived home early and wanted to know why they were wearing a mini skirt and stockings.

The original press release that all the news sites picked up on suggested, no in fact stated as fact, that Richard O'Brien was co-producing this new version, but now it's clear that he has nothing to do with it, and doesn't approve.

Gonna be a proper disaster then methinks....

Yes - just seen O'Brien quoted on the BBC News site:

"I have no view on whether it should be remade but it doesn't have my blessing," he added.

That's one of those "I don't mind what you do, but I really wish you wouldn't do it" no views, then.
