So I recently found out that MTV are remaking Rocky Horror because, amazingly, they don't quite realize that you DON'T REMAKE A CULT CLASSIC!!! If you, like me, think that this shouldn't happen there's a petition going on on change.org and I for one am happy someone has done this. So the links down below and if you're thinking hey it might not be that bad they plan to make it two hours ish long and include none of the original music. Oh and as if it couldn't get any worse, seemly Miley Cyrus is being comsidered for the part of Magenta. Kill me now :evil:
Stop this from happening (please): http://www.change.org/petitions/mtv-stop-your-attempt-to-remake-rocky-horror-picture-show

This is very, very old news, and it's more than likely not happening.

The MTV idea died long ago, and was replaced by "the creator of Glee wants to remake Rocky."

Yea, I know it's an old topic but when I seen the petition I thought it might be actually happening this time :shock: . And I think it's safe to say nobody would have wanted that :lol:

Well the answer is obvious: money. It's a very bad answer, but it's the answer. Whatever technical imperfections the movie might have, it is one thing a remake can never be: genuinely unique and original.

...soooo I've seen it now and on the whole i'd sayit wasn't 'bad', but not that good either. Some suspect casting choices, a bit too polished, too clean and sanitised, too pc. My biggest gripe is the same one I've kept coming back to over the whole issue of remakes/reboots which is why do it? especially if the original is a well loved film. Whats the point?

at the end of the day the whole thing was a bit 'meh'.

I'm not going to hold back. There was a reason why the project fell through many times - this result was why!

Changing Frank's gender was bad enough, but...It was made into Bubblegum PG certificated crap that isn't Rocky Horror. It was a disgrace to Richard O'Brien and Rocky and I really hope none of the new generation watches this terrible adaptation before they see the original movie or stage show. The sex, the rock n roll, the gothic creepiness and the attitude was gone. That IS Rocky.
