YAAS KWEEN!

With the first pics of The Rocky Horror Show remake out, we can officially say that we have full confidence in Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

We have to admit that we were more than a little skeptical when we heard there was going to be a remake at all. Why remake a cult classic?

But with Laverne as the lead, followed by Victoria Justice as Janet and Christina Milian as Magenta, we think this could be one seriously good show.

And even better — the original Dr. Frank-N-Furter himself will be returning with Tim Curry!

“It’s inspired by the original but it’s really our own take. It’s way more elaborate and couture,” Cox told EW about the new look of Frank.

The production is set to air this fall on Fox. Can’t wait!
