According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor is now developing a remake of Little Shop of Horrors for Warner Bros. in which he'll play the role of Seymour, the nerdy florist who is forced to feed the beast in order to keep his fame and popularity rising.
Marc Platt, the producer behind Broadway’s Wicked and such films as Wanted and Legally Blonde, is producing the redo, to which Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the playwright behind the Broadway's Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, is coming on board to write the script. There is no director set.
Little Shop originally was a quirky 1960 movie from Roger Corman that featured a milquetoast florist who discovers success with a human-eating plant. It was turned into an off-Broadway musical, which led to a second movie in 1986, directed by Frank Oz and starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin.
Being a huge fan of the very diverse Gordon-Levitt, I can't help but to be excited to see this project come to fruition.
