We finally got our first glimpse of the cast for Fox’s upcoming remake of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” and the results are… exciting. The re-imagining of the iconic 1975 midnight movie starring Susan Sarandon, Tim Curry and Meatloaf is given a modern make-over with Orange is the New Black‘s Laverne Cox stepping into Curry’s corset.
In the clip, the not-so-good Dr. confronts the two naifs at the center of the wickedly wacky tale, Janet Weiss (played by Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice) and Liv and Maddie veteran Ryan McCartan. Also taking on iconic roles are original star Curry as the narrator, Broadway star Reeve Carney as Riff Raff, Christina Milian as Magenta and Adam Lambert in Meatloaf’s original role, Eddie.
In the teaser for the Kenny Ortega-directed musical that will debut at Halloween, we see Brad and Janet approach Frank-N-Furter’s mansion, where they are greeted by creepy Riff and then get an up-and-down assessment from the dirty-minded doc.
