Chris Evans on Little Shop of Horrors Remake (Oct 15, 2020)

  • Published on:  10/28/2020
  • In an interview with Yahoo Finance on October 15, 2020, actor Chris Evans shared a small update on the remake of Little Shop of Horrors. The project is currently in development at Warner Bros. Pictures and is to be directed by Greg Berlanti and to be based on the 1982 stage musical, and 1986 film musical, of the same name, both featuring the music of Alan Menken and the lyrics and scripting of Howard Ashman.

    In the interview, Evans confirmed he's currently slated to play "the dentist" (Orin Scrivello, DDS), and that the project's currently up in the air --"I think a lot of people have a lot on their plate." -- adding, "hopefully, that goes next year sometime in the summer." (Though likely referring to the production itself, his comments could alternatively be referring to the film's release date, which has yet to be announced.)

    The full interview, where Evans talks A Starting Point, a new political venture, with its fellow co-founders Mark Kassen and Joe Kiani, can be watched / read here:
