Little Shop of Horrors Remake Coming from Arrow Creator Greg Berlanti. - Dec 08, 2016 by Webmaster
Warner Bros. is moving ahead with a new big-screen incarnation of the musical “Little Shop of Horrors,” with Greg Berlanti set to direct and Matthew Robinson writing the script, TheWrap has confirmed.
Marc Platt is producing the remake of director Frank Oz’s 1986 movie — a musical version of the 1960 Roger Corman cult classic. Platt has produced big-screen musicals like “Into the Woods” and this year’s awards sensation “La La Land” — as well as the Broadway megahit “Wicked.”
“The Little Shop of Horrors” started as a feature comedy about a florist’s assistant who grows a plant with a particular taste for humans. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken turned it into a Broadway musical that Oz then adapted for the big screen.
