You can stop shivering in antici ... pation: Fox has announced Laverne Cox will star as Frank-N-Furter in the "Rocky Horror" remake.

Get ready to give yourself over to absolute pleasure. Fox announced Laverne Cox will take on the iconic role of Frank-N-Furter in its version of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." (Video via 20th Century Fox / "The Rocky Horror Picture Show")

Cox will play the flirtatious, corsetted alien originally played by Tim Curry in the cult classic.

We can't wait to see the "Orange Is the New Black" actress take on the "Rocky Horror" style in the remake. 

"Couture," said Sophia on "Orange Is the New Black."

What we know so far is the remake will be directed and choreographed by "High School Musical"'s Kenny Ortega. (Video via Walt Disney Pictures / "High School Musical")

And "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" alum Gail Berman is producing it with Fox 21 Television Studios. 

We don't know who will play Brad and Janet yet, so we're shivering with ... 

" ... anticipation," as Frank-N-Furter said in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show."

"Rocky Horror" turned 40 this year and still shows in theaters across the country.
