It looks as though Taron Egerton is set to lead the new Little Shop Of Horrors.
The origins of Little Shop Of Horrors go back to a famous Roger Corman film all the way back in 1960, that’s subsequently been sold heavily off the back of Jack Nicholson having a couple of scenes in it. The story was then picked up by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, who turned it into the hit stage musical of the same name. And then in 1986, Warner Bros brought a film version of that musical to the screen, with Frank Oz directing.
Now? We’re getting a remake of that musical. It’s been bubbling around for a while this one, and Greg Berlanti – Love Simon – is set to direct. The screenplay has been penned by Matthew Robinson.
There’s a bit of casting news too, as the project looks to edge forward. Taron Egerton, fresh from bizarrely not getting an Oscar nomination for his work in Rocketman, has been approached about one of the lead roles. Likewise, a separate rumour suggests that Scarlett Johansson has also been offered the other lead role in the movie.
It’s all still unofficial and not confirmed, but clearly something is finally going on behind the scenes of this one. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more about it…
