Joseph Gordon-levitt - Joseph Gordon-levitt Developing Little Shop Of Horrors

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to star in a remake of 1960s movie 'Little Shop of Horrors'.

The 'Inception' actor is in line to portray Seymour, a nerdy florist who has to feed a giant, human-eating plant to keep his fame rising, in the comedy-horror musical motion picture.

'Glee' writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is expected to pen the script for the movie, with Marc Platt - who was behind Broadway production 'Wicked' - producing the film, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The original 1960s motion picture - which starred Jonathan Haze and Jackie Joseph - has already been remade once in 1986, starring Rick Moranis and Ellen Greene.

Joseph will appear as John Blake in 'The Dark Knight Rises' later this year, and the 31-year-old star is due to direct and star in a new as-yet untitled comedy movie with Scarlett Johansson, which he has written the script for.

He previously explained: ''I wrote myself a helluva role, one that people wouldn't necessarily thought of me for. This is the first time I finished a feature film I thought was good enough to make into a movie. I've written others, including one mammothy huge sprawling thing that encompasses my entire point of view of everything since I was 20 years old.''
