#SPOTTED: VICTORIA JUSTICE, RYAN MCCARTAN, REEVE CARNEY + STAZ NAIR IN TORONTO FOR “ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW”
Following the smash ratings and critical success of FOX‘s GREASE LIVE!, preparations are under way for the reimagination of ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW!
With a talented cast including Adam Lambert, Christina Milian, Victoria Justice, Ryan McCartan, Reeve Carney, Laverne Cox, Staz Nair and original cast member Tim Curry, rehearsals and filming continue in Toronto through April.
We spotted cast members Justice, McCartan, Carney and Nair fly in to begin work this week, sacrificing not only their amazing weather, but also their Valentine’s Day to be with us. Vocals already have been recorded in Los Angeles.
Best known from the arriving group is Actress/Singer Justice who has an ardent Social Media following, having starred in Nickelodeon hit series VICTORIOUS alongside Ariana Grande. She was in L.A. attending various GRAMMY festivities this weekend. She stars as Janet Weiss (originated by Susan Sarandon), while McCartan stars as Brad Majors, Carney as Riff-Raff and Staz Nair as the titular Rocky. A friendly bunch!
We’re actually stoked about this Production and curious to see a fresh perspective on a Classic and how they’ll make it interactive with a new generation of Fans!

Directed by Kenny Ortega, who crafted the High School Musical Trilogy, it is said this upcoming version is to remain faithful to the 1975 original.
No release date yet is set for ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, but we would assume around Halloween, right?!
