Joseph Gordon-Levitt is eyeing the Warner Bros. remake Little Shop of Horrors. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who is drafting the new Carrie remake for MGM, is in negotiations to write the screenplay.

If he officially signs on, the actor will play Seymour Kilborn, a meek florist who must continue to feed his gigantic plant, which feasts on humans, to secure his newfound fame and fortune. The role was previously played by Jonathan Haze in the 1960 version of The Little Shop of Horrors, directed by Roger Corman, and by Rick Moranis in Frank Oz's 1987 rendition, Little Shop of Horrors.

Marc Platt (Drive) is producing for the studio, although no director has been attached yet.
