Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee, has been approached about directing a remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, according to reports.

The news comes as his Glee stars have filmed an episode of the TV show which is devoted to the cult classic.

Deadline said that Ryan was being courted by Fox 2000 to direct a feature film remake of the 1975 musical, which originally featured Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon.
