    Default Susan Sarandon passed up Rocky Horror sequel

    Oscar-winning actress SUSAN SARANDON has turned down the chance to reprise her role in a sequel to cult classic ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW.

    The 61-year-old star, who played Janet Weiss in the original 1975 movie, was approached about a follow-up - but she reveals none of the original cast members, including Tim Curry and Christopher Biggins, were keen to revisit the musical.

    She says, "There was at one time a sequel discussed with me - and they may have even done it, I'm not sure - but none of us (original cast members) were really interested."

    Sarandon's daughter, Eva Amurri, was then offered her mom's old role in a Rocky Horror Picture Show remake.
    Sarandon tells the New York Daily News, "I asked her when I saw that in your paper, but why would anyone want to do a remake of a cult classic?"

    No big surprise here. She's always hated being associated with Rocky Horror. I don't know what she's so damn embarrassed about. Its not like its the banger sisters!!

    And BTW Tim Curry has always said he would gladly do it again.

    Wow, why would they even want to do a sequel? That is such a cult classic, so quirky and unique, there's no way a sequel would be anywhere near as amazing as the original!

    Cult classics don't need to be remade. I love the original RHPS... This is probably gonna suck.

    How is this news? Shock Treatment was made over twenty years ago. Also, some actors were in both: Patricia Quinn, Richard O'Brian, Little Nell, Charles Gray, and at least two others I can't think of.

    I thought Shock Treatment had much better songs than RHPS had, so I listen to the soundtrack for it all the time. The two movies aren't really connected.

    I don't think Susan Sarrandon hates being associated with RHPS. She was in interviews in the DVD release and she seemed to have very fond memories of it. If she hated it I don't think she would be in the DVD at all.

    I just love that movie and see no need for a sequel either. I don't think Sarrandon's daughter should do it either. She's a sweet girl but she would be completely wrong for a Janet role.

    I freaking adore RHPS but I've never seen the sequel, never wanted to.
    When your daughter plays "House," she pretends to be an annoying doctor with a pill-addiction and a limp.
