Second only to James Franco, as the actor with the most fingers in the most proverbial pies, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is evidently developing a remake of the cult classic, Little Shop of Horrors.

Originally, Little Shop of Horrors was a low-budget 1960 film by Roger Corman about a nerdy florist named Seymour who discovers an alien plant with a penchant for human flesh. It spawned an off-Broadway musical, which in turn, birthed the 1986 version starring Rick Moranis that most folks are familiar with.

Gordon-Levitt, who has already demonstrated his musical capabilities in the past, will play Seymour. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, a staff writer for Glee and the playwright responsible for the Broadway smash, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, will pen the script. Veteran producer, Marc Platt, who brought Wicked to the “Great White Way”, and Legally Blonde and Wanted to the big-screen, will produce. No word yet, as to what director will be at the helm.

In addition to prepping for his directorial debut, and running a multi-media website, Gordon-Levitt has three high profile films coming down the pike for 2012: Rian Johnson’s Looper, Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, and Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. Busy, busy man indeed.
