Wow, the cult classic movie ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ is to be remade and they’re talking about Marilyn Manson as the kind of actor they want to audition, the idea being they want to bring Rocky into the 21st century and make the film a bit edgier and more contemporary than the 1970′s original.

I have to say I’m not really in favour of a new version, I kinda like the cheesy kitschy original, although if I had my choice I’d ditch Meatloaf from the original, I’ve never been a Meatloaf fan so he’d be no loss, but the rest of the cast made that film and I can’t see a remake replacing it.

Of course they probably don’t intend to replace the original, maybe the success of the DVD version of Rocky, and the Star Wars franchise is making the Rocky franchise greedy. Either way, I don’t think the original will ever be threatened in my heart by a new version, actually a new version would have to be VERY good to get my loyalty.
