Tim Burton to Remake Little Shop Of Horrors!

Along with working on an upcoming Addams Family film and the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer flick, it is also rumoured that Tim Burton will be re-imagining Little Shop Of Horrors!

As much as we hate when our favies are revamped, we think Burton is just the right person to give it a try. As long as we don't have to see Johnny Depp as Seymour Krelborn. Just.... no. There is talk that this movie would be done entirely in motion capture performances, so we'll say our prayers that it isn't so.

There are certain elements that they CANNOT mess with. I want to hear all the original songs (not overly manipulated into unrecognizable new crap), I want the Shoop Shoop narrator chicks, and the plant must talk and sing - in a soulful sexy baritone. Ohhh yeahhh! Also, special effects have come soooo far since 1986 that they better not CGI the shit outta the Audry II. Come on, if the 80s effects guys could make that plant so amazingly realistic, they can definitely knock our socks off nowadays.

I would also personally enjoy a 3D mean green mother from outer space. It could work.

So who would you like to see cast in this project (let's hope it's live action)?

Sweet! I love that movie, and still find myself with a song from the soundtrack stuck in my head. Particularly Suddenly Seymour.

I really enjoyed that movie with I do believe was a remake itself. Hopefully his remake will be as good as the first.
