Just in time for Halloween, Fox Searchlight Pictures has announced that 2016 will see a 'Rocky Horror' remake -- exciting news for fans of the spooky, goofy cult classic.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show was originally released in 1975, with Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon in the lead roles. The risque film has been running in theaters ever since, making it the longest-running picture in film history. It's still extremely popular at special events, where die-hard Rocky Horror fans dress up, sing and dance along and follow specific traditions like throwing toast, hot dogs and rice at the screen during certain scenes.
The Rocky Horror remake will be a television special that re-imagines the original film. Laverne Cox will star in the role of Dr. Frank-N-Furter.
