New ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ to Open Despite Recession

Little Shop of Remakes

In news that should divide audiences, it appears that our best buds over at Shock Til You Drop have gotten the inside scoop exclusive from Declan O’Brien who claims that he’ll follow up making Wrong Turn 3 by re-upping a remake of Little Shop of Horrors.

So I imagine a few of you are rejoicing at the news – because it’s a cool story. A few of you are cursing the screen right now – because it’s an iconic story. A few of you are questioning what a shop of horrors is and how it got so small.

O’Brien got the gig after making Cyclops for Roger Corman, who was so impressed that he opened up his library of rights to the writer/director. O’Brien chose what might be the most ridiculous space-alien human-eating plant musical ever produced.

As for plot details?

I have a take on it you’re not going to expect. I’m taking it in a different direction, let’s put it that way.

As for me, as long as their are singing, murderous plants and a psychotic dentist, I’ll be satisfied. Now – who should play Seymour?

This, of course, proves the chorus girls from the movie correct. We never will stop the terror.

What do you think? Totally worth it? Or another remake that shouldn’t be remade?
