Greg Berlanti doesn’t have enough to do. He’s only shepherding the CW’s superhero operations and the upcoming Riverdale series and the hit NBC show Blindspot. So why wouldn’t he also sign on to direct a reboot of an iconic musical? According to Deadline, Berlanti will be helming a new film version of Little Shop of Horrors, capitalizing on the current cultural hot streak being ridden by both musicals and remakes. Berlanti will be the third man to bring Little Shop to screen, following in the footsteps of Roger Corman and Frank Oz. This will be his first feature-length directorial effort since 2010’s Life As We Know It.
