Filmmakers Joe Dante and Roger Corman are to team up once again. The partnership that brought you Outpost favorite Piranha are going to work together on Little Shop of Halloween Horrors.

This is a reboot of Corman’s famed 1960 horror-comedy.


Dante will be joined by his Gremlins 2: The New Batch writing partner Charles S. Haas. Corman will produce alongside Brad Krevoy. Corman’s original starred a young Jack Nicholson. It then went on to be an off-Broadway musical that gained notoriety, leading to the 1986 Frank Oz-directed film that starred Rick Moranis and Steve Martin. This version would earn Oscars for visual effects and original song (Mean Green Mother from Outer Space).

Both told the story of a florist who discovered a strange plant with a craving for human flesh. As the plant grows, Seymour must feed it victims to keep it satisfied, leading to a series of darkly comedic and increasingly twisted events.


Little Shop Of Horrors was famously shot on a budget of $28,000. Interiors were shot in two days on sets that had been left standing from A Bucket of Blood. Classic Corman.

The better-known remake movie was shot on a budget of $25 million and was filmed entirely on the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios, where a New York street scene complete with an overhead railway was built.

There was finally a 2003 Broadway debut, then a revival off-Broadway in 2019. Another movie remake has been discussed for years but had previously never got off the ground.
