Premieres tonight on FOX, The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again, the remake of the 70s cult classic. This version is a modern re-telling of the film that completes 41 years this year.
In the 70’s, the movie was played in midnight sessions here in the United States. The transgenic actress Laverne Cox, who became famous for her role in the Netflix series Orange is the New Black, plays the mad scientist Frank-N-Furter who was played by Tim Curry in the original version. This time around Tim Curry makes a cameo as the criminologist and narrator of the story. The film revolves around a scientist who gets a innocent young couple inside his castle on a rainy night. The castle is habited by aliens from the Transexual planet and Frank’N’Further is finishing an experiment that will create the perfect man only to serve him.
Besides Laverne and Tim, the cast includes Victoria Justice, Ryan McCartan, Adam Lambert, Reeve Carney, Christina Milian, and others. I had the opportunity to talk with the actors Ryan McCartan and Reeve Carney about the remake, what we can we expect of the show, the collaboration with Tim Curry and more.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again will premiere tonight on FOX at 8:00 PM ET/PT.
