Rocky Horror Remake Slammed By Creator
A remake of cult classic THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW has been slammed by its creator RICHARD O BRIEN.
The original 1975 film, starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Meat Loaf, was a cult hit for O'Brien and MTV bosses are keen to replicate its success.
But the Brit won't be involved - and is not happy the remake is going ahead without him.
He says, "I have no view on whether it should be remade but it doesn't have my blessing.
"I'm not co-producing it and I won't be involved in any way. The first I heard about it was when people sent me cuttings from U.S. papers."
