Four decades after its premiere, The Rocky Horror Picture Show has achieved the longest-running theatrical release in film history and remains the most well-known and financially successful midnight movie of all time.
This seminal horror musical piece deserves to be celebrated by horror hounds for its success over the years and FOX is honoring the 40th anniversary of the film this summer with a special two-hour TV remake. That’s right! FOX is currently developing The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event with the intention to premiere it mid-August.

Although, casting isn’t final yet, we can assure the original producers, Gail Berman and Lou Adler, are back on board for the TV remake. So expect another amazing spectacle this summer.
