Joseph Gordon-Levitt Developing Little Shop of Horrors Remake

ON

Heat Vision reports that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is developing a Little Shop of Horrors remake at Warner Bros. Pictures as a vehicle for him to star in.

Marc Platt (Broadway’s “Wicked,” Wanted) is producing the new version, which will be written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Broadway’s “Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark”). A director has not yet been set.

Roger Corman’s original 1960 version starred Jonathan Haze and also featured Jack Nicholson in one of his first film appearances. The tale of a mild-mannered young man who discovers a carnivorous plant was remade in ’86 with Frank Oz in the director’s chair. That film starred Rick Moranis and Steve Martin.

Gordon-Levitt’s upcoming credits include The Dark Knight Rises, Premium Rush, Looper and Lincoln.
