Get ready to live-tweet: Fox is working on a remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, set for this fall, and Victoria Justice is set to star as naive Janet Weiss, a role originated by Susan Sarandon. Kenny Ortega, the man behind High School Musical, is working on the sure-to-be-fun remake.

Rocky Horror is a cult classic on college campuses and often shows during midnight screenings at theaters across the country. And the musical is a major departure from Nickelodeon: She and a co-star spend much of the plot walking around in their underwear, and that's the least scandalous thing that happens on screen. But the role will let her show her singing and dancing chops, and the rest of the cast looks just as talented.

Ryan McCartan from the Disney Channel show "Liv and Maddie" will play Janet's fiancé, Brad Majors:

"Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox has already been cast as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a mad scientist from Transylvania originally played by Tim Curry:

Reeve Carney, from "Spider Man: Turn Off the Dark" and "Penny Dreadful," will play sidekick Riff Raff:

And singer and actor Staz Nair will play Rocky, the perfect specimen Dr. Frank-N-Furter creates in his lab:

The cast has already started the love-fest on Twitter. Can fall come now, please?
