andysamberg-031709Saturday Night Live comic Andy Samberg has been tapped by MTV to host the 18th annual MTV Movie Awards, the network announced:

“I’m super excited to host the movie awards,” Samberg said in a statement released to Usmagazine.com. “I grew up watching the show and a lot of the past hosts are heroes of mine. Plus my friends and I were writers for the show prior to working at SNL, so it will be a sweet and satisfying homecoming.

MTV says they’re giving the comedian free range to do whatever he wants to parody this year’s movies.

“Andy’s connection with the MTV audience is so strong…it’s electric,” said Stephen Friedman, General Manager of MTV. “We can’t wait to see what subversive take he’ll have on our audience’s favorite movies of the year. We, like Andy’s many fans, are thrilled he’s decided to grace MTV with his unique talent.”

It’s hard to imagine this being anything but a very, very bad thing.  Variety is reporting that MTV is readying a remake of the 1975 cult classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show.  Lou Adler, the executive produce of the original film, is partnering with BermanBraun and Fox Television Studios on the two-hour remake.  They say that the film will use the original screenplay by Jim Sharman and Richard O’Brien but may also include music not featured in the original. “I’d like to see it shown a year from this coming Halloween, but that’s up to MTV,” Adler said.  At least Adler is involved.  Then again, why make a new movie if all you’re doing is remaking it?
