There’s a Little Shop of Horrors remake in the works, Deadline reports!
Warner Bros. has tapped famed producer Greg Berlanti to direct the project. Little Shop has a long history! It was originally a 1960s campy horror film starring Jack Nicholson.
That film was then adapted into a Broadway musical in 1982, with music by Alan Menken. If you didn’t know, Alan is also known for his work writing for Disney’s Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast!
Later, in 1986, the musical was adapted into a movie-musical starring Rick Moranis in the main role as Seymour.
The production has since come back to Broadway, and was even brought back as a limited run show last year in New York City with Jake Gyllenhaal in the leading role.
No casting has been announced.
