Adam Lambert will be on TV and yea this news delighted fans earlier this year after he announced that he would be playing the role of Eddie in the TV reboot of ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show‘ and he has now confirmed the project’s release date.
The star has now explained that fans will be able to watch the reworked version of the iconic movie in just a few months:
He posted: “It’s official! ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ will air on @FOXTV on October 20th! Mark your calendars!”
Back in May, Lambert confessed that he was initially wary of the remake because the film is so incredible and beloved: “It’s an incredible original film… It’s shocking. Especially for then… when I was a kid and I first saw it, I was like ‘can they do that?!’ That was the thing – it is so iconic and such a cult hit that when I heard they were re-doing it, I was like ‘ooh, that’s a little risky, how are they going to do that?'”
The Rocky Horror Picture Show follows sweethearts Janet Weiss (Victoria Justice) and Brad Majors (Ryan McCartan), who stumble upon the bizarre abode of Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s (Laverne Cox), a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad scientist. She is holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of “Rocky Horror” – a fit, attractive man (Staz Nair) created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.
Earlier this week Christina Milian, who will play Magenta said they didn’t want this new version to “replace” the original: “It’s really fun to see all of us bring our own take to these characters, and also just pay homage to the original.”
