Joseph Gordon-Levitt Developing a 'Little Shop of Horrors' Remake
A Singing Plant. Joseph Gordon-Levitt. A "Glee" Writer. A Broadway Producer. Just don't feed the plants. Yep, they're doing another Little Shop of Horrors remake. Variety was the first to report on the news that Warner Bros is in the works on another Little Shop with "Glee" co-producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa in early negotiations to write the screenplay. THR, on the other hand is reporting that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt is partially developing the project "with an eye to star," and also that Marc Platt, producer behind Broadway's Wicked and films like Wanted and Legally Blonde, is producing this remake. Dang quite a team.
The project is still in the early development stages now, but it sounds like some major connections have been made, especially with Gordon-Levitt, who is about to become even bigger this summer with The Dark Knight Rises, Premium Rush and Looper. THR states that "if the project comes together in an ideal fashion, Gordon-Levitt would play Seymour, the nerdy florist who is forced to feed the beast in order to keep his fame and popularity rising." Makes sense. Little Shop of Horrors was originally a classic Roger Corman film about a man-eating plant that got turned into a musical and a movie, now it's back again. No director has been named yet, but it sounds like they're developing the script with Aguirre-Sacasa and Gordon-Levitt first.

CANDYBAAAAAR! The Frank Oz version is untouchable from the cameos, the animatronics, humor and especially Levi Stubbs as Audrey II (Billion dollars says Cee-Lo gets it this time around). I know the plant will be a lot of CGI, but this could be good if they dont make it too "sensational" and "glitz-broadway"...this vehicle works well as grimy, dirty, seedy and comedic to pull off the fantastical and horror aspects.....count me interested in the very least!
