It’s almost time for a classic to reborn! The first teaser for Fox’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show remake has arrived.

In the teaser, Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox shows off her turn as Dr. Frank-N-Furter (played by Tim Curry in the original), while Victoria Justice (Janet) and Ryan McCartan (Brad) also appear briefly.

“It’s not easy having a good time,” says a playful Cox.

Fox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show cast also includes Adam Lambert (Eddie), Christina Milian (Magenta) and Broadway stars Annaleigh Ashford (Columbia) and Reeve Carney (Riff Raff). Curry makes a cameo as film’s the Narrator.

“I think we mix up the look more than they did in the original,” Cox told Entertainment Weekly last week of her look for the role. “It s way more elaborate and couture. [Director] Kenny Ortega had this vision that Frank was at this old theater and found these old burlesque costumes and is, like, using them and wearing them now but has altered them a bit.”

Fox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show airs this fall.
