Brand Favourite For Rocky Horror Remake

British funnyman Russell Brand is expected to take the lead role in
the remake of cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, according to

The original 1975 movie, which starred Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and
Meat Loaf, is set to be remade, with studio bosses were keen to
replicate the original's success.

And British comedian Brand, who kicked off his film career in
Forgetting Sarah Marshall earlier this year, is favourite to take on
Curry's coveted role of transvestite scientist Frank N Furter,
according to the London Paper.

A source tells the publication, "It would make sense for him to be
Frank N Furter."
I was thinking of Anthony Stewart Head for the role but maybe he's too old.
