MTV Seeks Rocky Horror Remake

MTV plans to remake cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Yes, you unfortunately read that title correctly: MTV is seriously planning to remake the 1975 cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

While I cannot deny how popular musicals have become (i.e. Mamma Mia!, High School Musical, Hairspray), are there not already tons of other musicals to tamper with other than this one? Can producers possibly more cold-hearted than I thought?

On the upside (yes, there’s actually an upside) to this, the executive producer of the original, Lou Adler, is attached to the project, along with BermanBraun and Fox Television Studios. They also plan on using the original screenplay (thankfully!); however, they may incorporate songs not included in the original (what?).

Fast Times at Ridgemont High
as a stoner and Jennifer Jason Leigh as a budding young slut - what says high school quite like that? This uproariously funny cult classic will absolutely never go out of style (I think it has something to with Judge Reinhold). The music and fashion might be dated, sure, but certain truths always remain despite the years that pass.

High School Musical: The New Class

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Disney, Family, Music, Musicals, Sequels, Casting,

High School MusicalMore than one thousand kids from around the world tried out for , and after an extensive search Disney has picked three of them to become the stars of tomorrow. The three new talents will play sophomores at East High, bringing some much-needed fresh blood to the set. Avid Disney watchers will recognize Matt Prokop from Hannah Montana, but British-born Jemma McKenzie-Brown is a little harder to place (her acting creds include work on BBC). Justin Martin, the third addition to the cast, was seen in ABC’s A Raisin in the Sun.

Director Kenny Ortega says the three newbies will bring a lot of “musical fun” to the film, claiming that Jemma offers impressive singing and dancing. Ortega boasted of Matt’s comedy skills and Justin’s “presence and charisma.” The movie will hit the big screen in October, with filming set to being in Utah within the next few weeks.

Vanessa Hudgens Moves Toward Mainstream Success

Vanessa HudgensWith some stars, it’s all over once gets their hooks into you. Just take a look at , who once had a highly promising career. But star won’t fall victim to the teen trap - at least, not yet. The songbird is slated to star in , a movie about two very different high school students who form a bond because of a shared love of .

Wait a minute. That sounds a little familiar…isn’t that the exact plot of the movies? Maybe Hudgens isn’t breaking out of her teen queen role after all. In this version, Hudgens plays the popular girl (Sam) who falls for the school outcast. Together with others who don’t quite fit in, they form a rock band.

Shooting for the flick is slated to begin in February, and I’m already bored with the whole project.

Dress Up Like Hollywood for Halloween

Britney Spears at the VMAs

What’s hot this Halloween? Hollywood is always hot, and this year the costume ideas are churning right out of LA. Will you have the popular look this October 31st?

Britney is in…at least, she’s in if you’re trying to make her look bad. This Halloween, plenty of men are dressing drag and letting beer bellies hang. The look? , a la the VMAs. The costume? Extremely skimpy – so don’t wear it unless you plan to stay indoors.

Little boys are gearing up as mini and suiting up in the black costume, so be prepared to meet pint-sized heroes at the door this year.  outfits are still in; it’s the Halloween look that just won’t go away (like the movies).

Spartans sporting the 300 look will be appearing at parties this year, as will the more comedic look of ’s Ricky Bobby. Though the movie is old (over a year, now), the look is not – elaborate and over-the-top costumes are all the rage for those who want to go all out.

TV is getting attention from Halloween revelers as well. This year, kits and -esque outfits are flying off novelty shelves.
