Okay, this is some fantastic casting news...
...Full Circle is reporting that Taron Egerton (Rocketman) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) are being eyed for the starring roles in Warner Bros. Little Shop of Horrors reboot! According to the site, Egerton would likely be playing the main role of the nerdy Seymour, with Johansson in the role of Seymour's love interest, Audrey.
Originally an off-broadway musical by writer Howard Ashman and composer Alan Menken, Little Shop of Horrors was first adapted for the screen in 1960 by Roger Corman, followed by a 1986 remake from director Frank Oz that has since become a cult classic.
In the 1986 version of Little Shop of Horrors:
"A nerdy florist (Rick Moranis) finds his chance for success and romance with the help of a giant man-eating plant who demands to be fed."
Personally, I think Egerton and Johansson would make a PERFECT Seymour and Audrey together, but we'll have to wait and see if any of this becomes official.
