The San Diego Comic-Con, which runs July 21-24, will feature the premiere of and a panel about 20th Century Fox Television’s remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Cast members and producers will be on hand for the first look at the two-hour event, which will premiere this fall on Fox.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show, according to press notes, is an “all-new star-studded reimagining of the cult classic—which is celebrating 40 years of theatrical distribution, longer than any other film in history—for broadcast television. Sweethearts Janet (Victoria Justice) and Brad (Ryan McCartan), stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s (Laverne Cox) bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad-scientist – with the help of his faithful servants Riff Raff (Reeve Carney) and Magenta (Christina Milian)—is holding an annual, Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of ’Rocky Horror’ (Staz Nair)—a fit, attractive man created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.”
Kenny Ortega directs Rocky Horror, which is executive-produced by Lou Adler, Gail Berman and Ortega.
