WB setting up ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ remake

'Glee' co-producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa in talks to pen new script

“Glee” co-producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is in early negotiations to write a new version of “Little Shop of Horrors” for Warner Bros. and producer Marc Platt (“Wicked”).

“The Dark Knight Rises” star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is circling the lead role of nerdy florist Seymour Krelborn, previously played by Rick Moranis and Jonathan Haze. Protag is a nerdy florist who must feed a people-eating plant named Seymour that offers him fame and fortune.

Roger Corman directed the original 1960 pic, while WB released Frank Oz’s 1986 remake, which starred Moranis, Steve Martin and Ellen Greene.

A versatile scribe who is active in film, TV, theater and comicbooks, Aguirre-Sacasa was recently hired by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire banner to adapt Megan Shepherd’s upcoming young adult novel “Madman’s Daughter.” He rewrote the book for the Broadway show “Spider Man: Turn Off the Dark” and has been widely credited with making the show a success. He also penned the script for MGM/Screen Gems’ remake of “Carrie,” based on the Stephen King novel.

In addition to serving as a co-producer on Fox’s hit series “Glee,” Aguirre-Sacasa co-wrote the first season of Marvel’s new “Fantastic Four” comicbook with David Marquez.

Platt recently produced “Drive” and is currently in pre-production on Akiva Goldsman’s “Winter’s Tale” and the Mark Wahlberg-Denzel Washington vehicle “2 Guns.”

Aguirre-Sacasa is repped by WME, while Gordon-Levitt is repped by CAA.
