Rocky Horrified

Can’t Fox just leave well-enough alone? (20th Century Fox)

Apparently, Fox is planning to make a TV version of the classic musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

The original 1975 film—and cult classic—starred Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Meat Loaf and a host of others. And it permanently imprinted the dance steps to the Time Warp in the minds of anyone who watched it.

Now Fox thinks we need a new version? Give me a break.

I suppose my worst fear is true: Hollywood is out of original ideas. And I shudder to think what classic film or television show they plan to “relaunch” next.

Gilligan’s Island, anyone?
