Glee creator Ryan Murphy just finished an episode of his hit show that is devoted to the camp classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show. By the time it airs October 26, Murphy might be in a deal to direct the feature film remake, reports Deadline which adds that he’s being courted by Fox 2000 to direct a remake of the 1975 musical. The original has grossed north of $100 million and is considered the longest running theatrical release in film history because it still packs the faithful into midnight shows. Rocky, written by cast member Richard O’Brien and director Jim Sharman, launched Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick and had a cast that included O’Brien, Nell Campbell and Meat Loaf in a raucous re-telling of the Frankenstein story. Dammit Janet (bitch!)
