Ryan Murphy's Rocky Horror remake?

October 19th, 2010

Ryan Murphy is being lined up to direct the 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' remake.

The 'Glee' creator has recently put the finishing touches to a 'Rocky Horror' themed episode of the hit TV show and now sources say he has been approached by Fox 2000 producers Peter Chernin and Lou Adler to direct a remake of the 1975 camp musical, Deadline.com reports.

The original film - a comedy-horror musical about a newly engaged couple who discover a group of strange and outlandish people holding an Annual Transylvanian Convention when their car breaks down in an isolated area - grossed more than $100 million at the box office.

The movie - which starred Susan Sarandon, Tim Curry and Meat Loaf - was adapted from a stage musical, written and developed by Richard O'Brien.

This is a busy time for Ryan - along with his 'Glee' duties the 'Eat Pray Love' director is working on a new romantic comedy starring Julia Roberts for Sony Pictures .

He is also said to be interested in directing new 'Hulk' actor Mark Ruffalo in 'The Normal Heart', a movie adaptation of the Larry Kramer play about AIDS.

The 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' themed 'Glee' episode will air in the US on October 26th.
