Feed Me, Seymour

Another day, another remake. This one: A second remake of the classic 1960 Roger Corman flick, Little Shop of Horrors. Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Declan O'Brien -- who directed the forthcoming straight-to-DVD sequel, Wrong Turn 3 -- has signed on to direct the remake. He says:

Actually its been a busy time for me. I just optioned Roger Corman's 'The Little Shop of Horror', which I'm setting up as a big studio remake," he tells B-D this morning. "We're in the process of talking to studios this week. It will be a remake of Roger's original 1960's movie. I don't want to reveal too much, but it's me, it'll be dark," he explains. "It wont be a musical."

Bummer. The musical aspects of Frank Oz's 1986 remake we're really its only redeeming features. Without it, it's just a silly man-eating plant movie. And without Rick Moranis and Steve Martin, I don't see how it works. It hardly seems like a remake worth doing, and if you have to do it, you'd imagine you could find someone better than the straight-to-DVD director of Rock Monster and Monster Ark.


But, speaking of remakes (I'm just going to shoe-horn this one in here), did anyone catch last night's episode of "Scrubs." Not one of the best (the whiplash poignancy gave me a headache) but it did feature one of the coolest song remakes in the history of mankind. Give it up, y'all. Ted sings "Hey-Ya!"
