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?).

Quentin Tarantino Completes Inglorious Bastards Script

Tarantino finally finishes Inglorious Bastards script!

HALLELUJAH! Last weekend at the Provincetown Film Festival,

Movie God

writer-director Quentin Tarantino announced that he has finally finished the screenplay for that itty-bitty, unknown war epic called Inglorious Bastards.

With having narrowed a once thousand something-page script down to a more reasonable one under two-hundred, Tarantino stated he was “real happy dude right now.” As a personal Tarantino worshipper, I think it’s safe to say that he’s not the only one.

The film will mark the ground-breaking director’s sixth major feature—his first solo project since Kill Bill: Vol. 2 back in 2004. Like Kill Bill, this upcoming WWII epic will most likely be a two-part saga; unlike his revenge movie, Inglorious Bastards will be his first period piece.
