Victoria Justice (“Victorious”) and Ryan McCartan (“Heathers The Musical”) are set to play sweethearts Janet and Brad respectively in FOX’s upcoming “Rocky Horror Picture Show” telemovie event special.
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.
