A remake of Little Shop of Horrors is headed our way with Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service) as Seymour, Scarlett Johanson (Eight-Legged Freaks) as Audrey, and Billy Porter (American Horror Story: Apocalypse) as the voice of Audrey II.
And today we have word via THR that Chris Evans (Snowpiercer) will portray Orin Scrivello AKA The Dentist, a role played by Steve Martin in the 1986 movie. Sounds like a good choice to us!
Greg Berlanti will direct this new musical version of Little Shop of Horrors, with Matthew Robinson penning the script. Are you excited for this new version? Let us know in the comments below or over on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
The musical version centered on a meek flower shop assistant named Seymour (Rick Moranis) who pines for his co-worker Audrey (Ellen Greene). During a total eclipse, he discovers an unusual plant he names Audrey II, which feeds only on human flesh and blood. The growing plant attracts a great deal of business for the previously struggling store. After Seymour feeds Audrey’s boyfriend, Orin (Steve Martin), to the plant after Orin’s accidental death, he must come up with more bodies for the increasingly bloodthirsty plant.
Little Shop of Horrors was directed by Frank Oz from a screenplay by Howard Ashman based on his musical and the original film by Roger Corman and Charles B. Griffith. David Geffen produced and Alan Menken provided the songs. Warner Bros. released it on December 19, 1986.
