Fox‘s The Rocky Horror Picture Show (2016) debuts this upcoming Fall 2016 but thankfully we have some first look photos to tide you over a little until then. Kenny Ortega (Hocus Pocus (1993)) directs the special two-hour reboot TV movie with stars including Laverne Cox (Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Orange is the New Black), Victoria Justice (Janet, Victorious), Ryan McCartan (Brad, Liv & Maddie, Heathers: the Musical), Adam Lambert (Eddie, Glee), Reeve Carney (Riff Raff, Penny Dreadful, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Staz Nair (Rocky, Game of Thrones), and Tim Curry as the Criminologist Narrator.
THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW follows sweethearts Janet (Justice) and Brad (McCartan), who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s (Cox) bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad-scientist - with the help of his faithful servants Riff Raff (Carney) and Magenta - is holding an annual, Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of "Rocky Horror" (Nair) - a fit, attractive man created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.
Executive-produced by Lou Adler (Grammy Award winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee), Gail Berman (TV, film and Broadway producer) and Kenny Ortega ("High School Musical" franchise, "This Is It," "Descendants," "Hocus Pocus," "Newsies"), THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is a reimagining of the cult classic, which is celebrating 40 years of theatrical distribution - longer than any other film in history. One of the most popular films of all time, it still plays in movie theaters around the world.
