The popular director and choreographer of High School Musical and Newsies has been tapped to handle the same duties in a new incarnation of the 1975 musical cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, now being developed for Fox, with a greenlight dependent on casting. But hardcore fans who've gone to countless midnight screenings and "shadowcasts" needn't worry: The new Rocky is still going to be influenced by old B-movies, horror flicks and rock 'n' roll music.
"All of that still wants to be there," Ortega says. "What inspired The Rocky Horror Picture Show will still inspire it."
