Following the release of first images from The Rocky horror Picture Show reboot last week, FOX has decided to fully let the canon loose on the musical- TV show this week by releasing the very first teaser trailer.
Set to premiere this fall on FOX, the two-hour reimagining will feature an entire new cast of young actors performing fan-favorite characters from the 1975 cult classic.
Tim Curry who originally cemented the legacy of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, “a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious mad-scientist” from Transylvania, will now be performed by Emmy Award-nominated actress Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black). Curry will play the role of Criminologist Narrator in the reboot.
Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious mad-scientist, is holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of ROCKY HORROR – a muscle-bound specimen created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.
The Rocky horror Picture Show reboot is based upon the original screenplay by Jim Sharman and Richard O’Brien with lyrics and music by Richard O’Brien.
