When people say “There are some movies that shouldn’t be remade”, they could be talking about The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975). Based on the popular play, the bizarre cult favorite written by Richard O'Brien and Jim Sharman was a unique piece of cinematic satire that mixed 1970s sensibilities with edgy humor and nostalgia for old sci-fi and horror films. It was a ‘moment-in-time’ creation that hit all the right notes for
By your powers combined, or at least the powers of some folks in Hollywood, a Captain Planet movie is in development.
This just in: Paramount is developing a Captain Planet movie. Remember Captain Planet? Captain Planet And The Planeteers was a somewhat preachy cartoon with an environmental message that ran from 1993-1996. Depending on how old you were at the time, you either have fond memories of it (and its brightly designed, but strangely mulleted title character) or found it insufferable (primarily because of his supporting cast of teenage 'planeteers'), but it's unlikely you've forgotten it.
Captain Planet would be summoned "by your powers combined" when the Planeteers would work together with their magic rings to fight villains with names like 'Hoggish Greedly.'
The nostalgia factor aside, there's some interesting talent involved in bringing the Captain Planet movie to life. For starters, Paramount is the studio
Cast members Victoria Justice, Ryan McCartan, Christina Milian and Reeve Carney will be joined by with executive producers Lou Adler, Gail Berman and Kenny Ortega, for an exclusive first-look at the two-hour event premiering this fall on Fox. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is an all-new star-studded reimagining of the cult classic - which is celebrating 40 years of theatrical distribution, longer than any other film in history - for broadcast television.

The Crystal Maze, Cyber Zone, Fort Boyard... We look back at the UK game shows that dared to ask more than just quiz questions...
If the idea of yet another TV game show with an uninspiring presenter and ever so slight spin on the tried and tested Q&A formula fills you with apathy, you're not alone. Although TV quiz shows often rake in the viewers for a relatively low production budget, hence their popularity with TV studios, the whole genre feels a little stagnant. Perhaps it's the rise of the Internet, a general change in viewer culture, and the changing tastes that come with it. While many shows of the past delighted audiences with images of shiny new appliances, cars, and holidays to far-off destinations, today's shows mostly award cold, hard, and boring cash. Great for the winner, but not too interesting for the viewer. Give
This trailer, which comes courtesy of the Fox YouTube page, gives us our first look at Victoria Justice's Jane and Ryan McCartan's Brad, along with Laverne Cox's Dr. Frank-n-Furter. We also get our first look at Reeve Carney as Riff Raff, Dr. Frank-n-Furter's servant who answers the door when Jessie and Brad come across the house.
For the two-hour production set to air on Fox this fall, Curry will instead tackle the part of the criminologist narrator, played by Charles Gray in the original film. Curry's classic role will be taken over by Orange Is the New Black's Laverne Cox. Adam Lambert has also been announced as Eddie,
The pair will be joined by Reeve Carney ("Penny Dreadful") as Riff Raff and Staz Nair ("Game of Thrones") as Rocky.
The two-hour event is a reimagining of the 1975 film based on Richard O'Brien's classic musical. In this take, Brad and Janet enter the bizarre abode of Dr. Frank-n-Furter (Laverne Cox), a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad scientist who is holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of Rocky.
Lou Adler, Gail Berman and Kenny Ortega are executive producing. The project will shoot this winter ahead of a Fall debut.
Featuring music, lyrics and book by Richard O'Brien, the original show premiered in 1973 and the film in 1975 with the movie following a just-engaged couple (Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick) whose car breaks down outside a mysterious castle. The pair soon finding themselves overnight guests of the mad Doctor (Tim Curry), a self-descibed "sweet transvestite from transexual Transylvania".
The film developed a cult following and now holds the record for the single longest theatrical run of all time, having consistently played in theaters for 30 years thanks largely to midnight screenings.
Kenny Ortega ("High School Musical") will direct, choreograph and executive produce the new telemovie which Gail Berman is producing.
The Hollywood actress will reunite with former co-stars Patricia Quinn and Nell Campbell for a one-off discussion at the Royal Albert Hall on October 27.
The extravagant Q&A will take place alongside a special screening of Richard O'Brien's classic musical movie, with over 5,000 Rocky Horror fans expected to attend.
Lucy Noble, Director of Events at the Royal Albert Hall, said: "This is amazing news - we were already hugely excited about staging the 40th anniversary gala screening of this cult classic at the Hall, but having a Hollywood superstar on stage will make it that bit more special.
"We can't wait to hear Susan, Patricia and Nell talking about their amazing careers and sharing their memories of working on the incredible, unique Rocky Horror Picture Show.
