Warner Bros. has enlisted director Greg Berlanti and writer Matthew Robinson to bring Little Shop of Horrors, the campy classic about a carnivorous plant with an insatiable hunger, back to the big screen. This brand-new musical adaptation of the 1960 low-budget Roger Corman black-comedy, horror movie will reintroduce the story of a meek flower shop worker that brings a persuasive, talking plant back to life only to discover that it craves human flesh, forcing him to kill to keep it alive.
Berlanti is the executive producer responsible for the CW’s many hit DC Superheroes-based TV shows, such as The Flash, Supergirl and Arrow. Robinson wrote the script for the 2009 Ricky Gervais film, The Invention of Lying. Warners’ Niija Kuykendall will oversee the project for the studio.
