LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS To Possibly Re-Open at WB With JGL
There was something in the air today. Some kind of pollen, or plant allergen, something that led me to having a brief conversation about the multi-adapted in multiple mediums, Little Shop Of Horrors. And mind you this wasn't with fellow cinephiles or even casual readers. This was with some of my ten and twelve year old students. Yep, that's how far reaching this cult story goes. Maybe they know the Corman cult classic or the off-Broadway musical, either way, there was something in the air, 'cause mind you this conversation took place hours before The Hollywood Reporter brought us the exclusive that Warner Bros. and screenwriter Roberto Aguirre-Sasca would be developing a new version with Joseph Gordon-Levitt producing, and possibly starring. And with JGL's fondness for a good song and dance number (per his SNL appearance awhile back, and also 500 Days of Summer), the question then must be asked: will this be another musical adap? Well, only time, a good script, a green light and a gung-ho director and star will tell.
