Just as we’re getting a film reboot of West Side Story later this year, another well-regarded movie musical is getting one too despite people questioning whether or not it even feels necessary. Greg Berlanti is set to direct a new film adaptation of Alan Menken & Howard Ashman’s beloved 1982 cult musical, Little Shop of Horrors. Chris Evans is in talks to play Orin Scrivello, D.D.S. while Taron Egerton and Scarlett Johansson are circling the lead roles of Seymour and Audrey. Meanwhile, Billy Porter has apparently signed on to voice the vicious plant, Audrey II.

James Graham is set to adapt his Tony and Oliver Award-winning play, Ink, into a feature film.
