It all comes following reports that Scarlett Johansson and Taron Egerton are also in talks for the lead roles in the upcoming rendition of the Broadway hit being put on by Warner Bros.
The 35-year-old “Lost in Translation” reportedly up for the lead female role of Audrey with the 30-year-old Egerton reportedly being cast for the male role as plant lover Seymour Krelborn, with Billy Porter already signed on board to play to voice of the deadly Venus flytrap Audrey II.
As previously reported, Rick Moranis famously played Seymour in the film adaptation of the 196o’s comedy. The show was lead by an all-star cast that included the likes of John Candy, Steve Martin and Bill Murray. It is truly a classic.
“A nerdy florist finds his chance for success and romance with the help of a giant man-eating plant who demands to be fed,” a description about this cult classic read on IMDb.
