British funnyman Russell Brand is expected to take the lead role in the remake of cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, according to reports.
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 (08), 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."
