The 1987 version of Little Shop Of Horrors is one of the most fun musicals ever made, while the Roger Corman 1960 original is pretty good too. Now it appears Hollywood is planning another go round, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt spearheading a new take on the film.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who is drafting the new Carrie remake for MGM, is in negotiations to write the screenplay. Gordon-Levitt plans to play Krelboyne, a meek florist who must continue to feed his ever-growing - and talking - plant, which feasts on humans, to keep his newfound fame and fortune, and also hide the fact the plant has made him a murderer.
However the real question is whether this is a redo of the musical or not. While some of the initial info is contradictory, THR suggests it's Howard Ashman and Alan Menken's musical, as Marc Platt is attached to produce, who brought Wicked to Broadway, while Aguirre-Sacasa was brought in to sort out the book for the troubled Spider-man: Turn Off The Dark.
