Joseph Gordon-Levitt is developing a remake of Little Shop of Horrors, “with an eye” toward playing Seymour, The Hollywood Reporter writes. Ah! Too many feelings! On the one hand, sure, JGL would probably make a terrific Seymour. But ... Frank Oz’s 1986 movie, starring Rick Moranis, Ellen Green, and Steve Martin, is perfect in a way almost no other movie musical is. Broadway producer Marc Platt is set to produce the remake, and Robert Aguirre-Sacasa, a Glee producer, comic-book author, and playwright (who rewrote Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, among other things), is working on the script. This could be the greatest movie revival ever and it would still feel vaguely blasphemous.
