Let's do the time warp again!
MTV is getting ready for a full-remake of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." The network is teaming up with Lou Adler, exec producer of the original film and Fox Television Studios on this new rendition.
According to Variety, the 2-hour remake will use the original screenplay by Jim Sharman and Richard O'Brien but may also include music not featured in the original.
No word on casting yet, but remember, the original worked because of Tim Curry, and they better hire an actor with much charisma and chutzpah to pull this remake off!

New Line Cinema wanted more "Hairspray" and had asked creator John Waters to write the treatment!
I enjoyed all the incarnations of "Hairspray" and I'm looking forward to seeing a new take. Look, if "High School Musical" can be a franchise, why not "Hairspray?"

Apparently, director Peter Berg wanted to atone for the sins he committed in "Hancock," that he wanted to do a straight, comicbook film, that stays true to the genre. A lofty ambition the Will Smith project did not have.
Based on a five-issue comicbook series by Steve Moore that debuted in May through Radical Publishing, "Hercules: The Thracian Wars" will be produced by Universal Pictures.
Barry Levine, producing for Radical has this to say about Berg and producers, "What resonated for them was that this was character driven, about a character who’s more man than god, with conflicts and redemption."
Oh I hope they really stick with the conflicts and redemption of the comicbook. When translated to film, those raw emotions are the ones that always work!
