Joseph Gordon-Levitt Remaking ‘Little Shop of Horrors’


Joseph Gordon-Levitt is currently developing a remake of Little Shop of Horrors at Warner Bros. Pictures as a vehicle for him to star in as Seymour Krelborn.

Marc Platt (Wicked, Wanted) will produce the new version and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark) has been brought aboard to write the new screenplay.

Little Shop of Horrors was born as an ultra-low budget Roger Corman movie in 1960 (which featured Jack Nicholson in one of his first film appearances). It was adapted into an Off-Broadway musical in 1982, which was adapted into the 1986 movie musical, which starred Rick Moranis and Steve Martin, and was directed by Frank Oz.

  2. Me too. Had no idea Jack Nicholson had a role in a previous version. I am interested in seeing that version. I am excited to see how they remake this.
