(Newser) – MTV will remake the 1975 cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Variety reports. Lou Adler, the executive producer of the original film, will stick to the original screenplay, but the new rendition may include additional songs. There’ve been no casting or directing decisions yet, but Adler wants to see it shown a year from this coming Halloween. "But that's up to MTV," he adds.
