Rocky Horror Movie Returns

The Rocky Horror Picture Show set for a return

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is set to return for a new generation, 33 years after it was originally shown at cinemas. The original 1975 film, starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Meat Loaf, has become a kitsch classic, with fans often dressing up as the films characters for special screenings.

The new version of Rocky Horror, which was created by Richard O'Brien, will be co-financed by Sky Movies in the UK and MTV in the US and will aim to reach the youth market around the world.

The plot revolves around young American couple Brad and Janet who accidentally stumble into a strange world of alien transvestites and overt sexuality, with some musical results and tunes that have been remembered for a generation.

Lou Adler, executive producer on the original film, will return in the same role and the film will premier on Sky Movies. As yet, no cast or filming has taken place but Richard O'Brien will not be involved with the project.

The original Rocky Horror film cost just $1.2m to make while raking in an estimated $140m at the box office.
