I'm sorry for anyone who confused my last posting as a coninuation of old discussions regarding RHPS/Shock Treatment.

This discussion is regarding someone who wanted to write the true follow-up movie. Read on and you will see what I mean.

(Since I wrote the original post, I scanned the entire 85 pg script and I'm hoping that someone will tell/show me how to get it (even in adobe) small enough to send it to people. At the moment, I have the entire thing saved as six chapters - and when put together - they put together the entire thing.

Below is my original - if you skipped it becuase of the title...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Over the years there has been a lot of discussion about a true sequel. Here's what I do know - and would like to here from others...

As we all know, "Shock Treatment" was originally intended to be a true sequel and through time, trouble etc. became what it is today. I lvoe it - but it's not a sequel! Just the conintuing adventures. (And don't you think that the Criminiologist/Judge Oliver Wright are one and the same charater? Afterall - a social scientist could be a judge? Or am I just pissing into the wind?)

Not long after the success of the 15th Anniversary, Richard announced he had written a script for an actual sequel, at that time call "Revenge of The Old Queen". It was also announced that it was in pre-production. Simply put, that meant the studio had purchased the property - but didn't mean they WOULD produce it. (Happens all the time - now the film can't be produced without Fox involvement - and they don't seem to be interested.) At the time of the pre-production announcement, some of the plot-line was announced by the fan club - to include that Magenta get's killed, Dr. Scott is Gay, Janet has twins... Hmmmmmm.... sound much like the story of "Rocky Horror Shows His Heels" that we all read about in the old "Transylvanian" issues. It is likely that Richard did make demo recordings of a few (if not all) of the songs he intended. That being said, the songs are now owned by Fox studio due to copyright law - it all of the information is true that they purchased the property.

Meanwhile down at the ranch...

While the studio and fan club were making these announcements...

I had received a call from a gentlement by the name of David James, wanting to have me read the script he felt Fox should produce as the legitmet sequel to RH. He was sending out a certain number of copies to "Die Hard Fans" that he could get in touch with - and asking them to send letters to the studio. (I still have the original script number as #6 along with the letter for a "letter writing campaign.) I agreed to read his script, but quickly contacted Sal - who knew nothing about this. When I received the script, I sent a copy to him. I don't know what happened from his court after that!

I read it. It's an interesting piece of fiction - but certainly not what I would like to see as a sequel. It isn't Richard! It isn't his music that would make us tap our feet. It ain't right! But, as a piece of Rocky Horror history (and from what I've been hearing and reading - a Rocky Horror urban myth that I can prove really did happen.)

Anyone out there also have a copy of the script? If so - what copy is in the upper corner of yours? What is the color of the cover page? I can be very specific to even prove I have the original #6 copy.

If anyone who wants a copy, I'll spend some time re-typing the who thing - as I don't want to take this apart. (How I lost pgs from my RHPS film script once). And since this can't be copyrighted, I don't mind sharing it if it hasn't been made available before. (Has it??)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry for anyone who saw this posting with the original title. The actual title should have been called "The Rocky Horror Picture Show Part II Film Script " and then included the rest of my information. Because I don't have the abillity to change the title myself, please see the original

I hope that our administrator will change the original posting to this name but continue same information under both titles until done so. I still have the original letter to scan, but then I will be releasing said information (the script) to anyone who wants it or until the administrator or legal departments tell me I can't.

Many thanks,
Mike (2-Sex-C) Hess

I wouldn't mind a copy.
But then the songs are glue that sticks the show together and if they aren't any good. Then there's no point releasing it.
What happened to Frankie's Pheonix written by Rich?
I've always wanted to hear it.
Plus what are FOX going to do with the demo recordings?
Are they going to sell them?
