ROCKY HORROR remake lands former child star as female lead.

Purists of Jim Sharman’s beloved 1975 midnight movie staple THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (an adaptation of the stage hit THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW) be damned, Fox is blowing full steam ahead on their Kenny Ortega-directed TV version “event special”, with the cast filling out the roles nicely.

VARIETY reported today that teen star Victoria Justice is set to play Janet, the role made famous by Susan Sarandon in the original. Justice joins Disney Channel alum Ryan McCartan (who is no Barry Bostwick) as Brad.

But never mind that…who will play Frank ‘N’ Furter? After Tim Curry…who CAN play Frank ‘N’ Furter? Impossible!

Stay tuned for more info as we get it. In the meantime shiver with antici…………………………………………………………………..
