@MrLil It`s these questions that keep me awake at night...

FranknFurter: Eddie Izzard
Brad: Ryan Gosling
Magneta: Gemma Arteton
Criminologist: Stephen Fry
I can`t think of any others.

Meh.

Why would Ryan Murphy waste time on making Rocky Horror when he should be busy killing himself with a butter knife?

I LOVE Rocky Horror and I went out of my way(against my better judgement) to watch the glee episode of RHPS they did in 2011..It was F-cking awful. If that episode is any foreshadowing to his remake, I can only imagine it will go directly to the 5 dollar and under DVD bins.

I forgot it`s the creator of GLEE doing it so we need to find roles for the Jonas Brothers somewhere in the film.

Frankenfurter: Adam Lambert
Janet: Selena Gomez
Brad: Justin Beiber, (Very bland)
Riffraff: Constantine (sings well, looks like a lizard)
Magenta: Christina Hendricks
Columbia: Christina Ricci
Eddie: Axle Rose
Dr. Scott: Nathan Lane
Criminologist: Patrick Stewart
Rocky: Chris Evans (Can he sing?)

Here`s my cast. Chris Evans, only because he looks the part, but not sure he can sing. Did Peter Hinwood sing his part?

@Gerry

You can tell it was a dream because of how unrealistic it is. I have revised your dream into a more doable, realistic cast.

Frankenfurter - Arsenio Hall
Janet - Kim Kardashian
Brad - Arsenio Hall {in makeup}
Riffraff - Eddie Murphy
Magenta - Eddie Murphy {in makeup}
Colombia - Eddie Murphy {in different makeup}
Eddie - Arsenio Hall {in different makeup}
Dr. Scott - Arsenio Hall {in a whole LOT of makeup}
Criminologist - Nancy Grace
&
Rocky - Eddie Murphy {in a whole LOT of makeup}

I can`t fault a dream as it was only a dream but I hope you agree on this more realistic lineup.

The thing with cult flicks is that they only became popular because they were such piles of poo in the first place. What on EARTH would inspire someone to remake a movie that is, objectively, a complete pile poo?

I had a nightmare last night that they remade RHPS with this cast...

Frankenfurter - Adam Sandler
Janet - Kim Kardashian
Brad - the Situation
Riffraff - Eddie Murphy
Magenta - Eddie Murphy {in makeup}
Colombia - Eddie Murphy {in differant makeup}
Eddie - Justin Beiber
Dr. Scott - Sylvester Stalone
Criminologist - Nancy Grace
&
Rocky - Eddie Murphy {in a whole LOT of makeup}

I have a feeling that the ideas here are better than the actual casting will be. I`m sure there has to be a part for John Barrowman though I`m not certain he`s right for Frankenfurter. Also, Richard O Brien must get a role somewhere. Maybe Matt Frewer for Riff Raff if he can sing.

Looking at what others have said, could we have Columbia twins with Zooey Dechanel and Katy Perry? Not in keeping with the original but an ideal opportunity.

Frankenfurter: Justin Timberlake
Janet: Kristen Stewart

That being stated... A CURSE upon whomsoever remakes such a classic... Seriously. There are just some pieces of art that should never be replicated.

Frankenfurter: Marilyn Manson
Janet: Alexa Vega
Brad: Johnny Galecki
RiffRaff: Anthony Stewart Head
Magenta: Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls)
Colombia: Fairuza Balk
Eddie: Terrence Zdunich
Rocky: Taylor Lautner (might look funny with blonde hair though)
Dr. Scott: Michael Caine
Criminologist: Alice Cooper

I know... I borrowed some the cast of Repo!, But in all fairness, Darren Lynn Bousman would be the only director I`d trust to remake RHPS, and he`d probably call in some of those he`s already worked with to fill some spots...

Cape Fear was a pretty bad-ass remake as well. Remakes generally suck though.

Other noteworthy remakes are `The Shop Around the Corner` 1940 starring James Steward and Margaret Sullivan. The Judy Garland/Van Johnson 1949 remake entitled `Good Old Summer Time` was much better. But the re-remake `You`ve Got Mail` in 1998 with Tom Hanks and that dizzy chick Meg Ryan was just sad.

@Gerry1 the remake of the Maltese Falcon was better too! The one with Bogey, Lorre and Greenstreet? It was a remake...

You hate remakes? Well brace yourselves, LOGAN`S RUN will be remade starring Ryan Gosling. If is sticks to the book, it could be better than the first movie.

Why all this hate for Remakes? Some remakes age good. For example Judy Garlands remake of `A Star Is Born` was better than Janet Gayner`s and the re-remake by Barbra Streisand was also quite good, though how can I choose between Judy or Barbra?

Actually another few possibilities for Frank N Furter could be Eddie Izzard or Alan Cumming (he was great in Cabaret)

As for Criminologist... perhaps Bill Bailey! I can see him playing the part very well indeed!

David Bedella, the recent UK Tour/London Frank N Furter is being hailed as one of the best of all time. I think he`d be superb as Frank in a movie.

I can easily see Jack Black as Eddie, and possibly Jim Parsons as Brad if he can sing.

Daphne Rubin Vega was a great Magenta in the Broadway revival and could do a good job in the film. The same version had the infamous Joan Jett as Colombia... she was great, but as you can imagine, more Punk than spunky.

Dr Scott: Tim Curry cuz he has to be in this somehow.

Why don`t we just have Tim Burton do it? Johnny Depp as Frank and HBC as Roxie, and Meatloaf reprising his role.

This is a joke. To make a movie successful it has to be good. The reason this movie is a cult classic is because it`s terrible. Good luck.

also 3d drating sucks and is overplayed. The one movie i payed almost $20 to see the 3d looked like a pop up book, it was awful.

because what you all don`t get is that when a movie gets old enough it needs to be remade so people won`t forget about it, because people exist who don`t watch or read old stuff.

Why do the makers of glee think they can make good music?

Rocky horror show was a genre defining show.

Letting the GLEE pooheads loose on it will just turn it into a generic pop musical.
