“Feed me, Joseph!” Gordon-Levitt Developing A Little Shop Of Horrors Remake
by Travis Leamons on May 3, 2012

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has proven to be a jack of all trades, transitioning from child star to appearing in this summer’s most-anticipated release, The Dark Knight Rises. Outside of acting, he started hitRECord.org, an online production company used to host films and share profits with contributing artists. He’s also directed a pair of shorts, including one based on a short story by Elmore Leonard (TV’s Justified, Out of Sight).

Now the esteemed actor is looking to develop another Little Shop of Horrors with Marc Platt, the producer behind Broadway’s Wicked and the films Wanted and Legally Blonde. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the playwright behind the Broadway production of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, will write the script.

Originally, Little Shop was a Roger Corman film from 1960 about a unassuming florist whose fortunes turn due to a man-eating plant. It was later turned into an off-Broadway musical, which was then turned into a second movie release, directed by Frank Oz and starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin.

In all likelihood, JGL would play Seymour, the milquetoast florist. Though one wonders if his (500) Days of Summer co-star Zooey Deschanel will play Audrey.
