Chris Evans in talks to play dentist Orin Scrivello in Little Shop of Horrors remake
Actors Taron Egerton and Scarlett Johansson are also in discussions for the film
Chris Evans is in negotiations to join the cast of Greg Berlanti's remake of the cult classic, Little Shop of Horrors. Evans has reportedly been approached for the role of dentist Orin Scrivello.
While Bill Porter has already been cast in the remake, actors Taron Egerton and Scarlett Johansson are still in discussions for playing lead roles in the film.
Egerton is being eyed for the role of Seymour Krelborn, a flower shop employee who encounters and becomes an accomplice to a man-eating Venus flytrap, to be voiced by Porter. Johansson is in talks to play Audrey, Seymour's co-worker and love interest.
Roger Corman had directed the 1960 original that was later turned into a theatre musical by composer Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, which premiered Off-Broadway in 1982.
Little Shop of Horrors was subsequently adapted for the big screen again by director Frank Oz in 1986. Featuring Rick Moranis, Steve Martin, and Levi Stubbs, the film went to acquire a cult status among the audiences. Bill Murray, James Belushi, John Candy, and Christopher Guest made cameo appearances in the movie.
