It’s been revealed that Chris Evans has been cast as the sinister dentist in the upcoming Little Shop of Horrors remake and I think it’s perfect casting.
This remake of the musical, Little Shop of Horrors will be directed by Greg Berlanti.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chris Evans will take on the role of dentist Orin Scrivello.
In the movie, he’s Audrey’s abusive and sadistic boyfriend who finds great pleasure in being a dentist and causing his patients pain.
In the original movie, the role was played by Steve Martin.
Honestly, I think Chris Evans is perfect casting for this role.
He showed that he can play against type in Rian Johnson’s recent movie, Knives Out.
He also played a comedic dark character before as Lucas Lee in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.
The film will be made at Warner Bros. Pictures and Scarlett Johansson and Taron Egerton are supposedly circling lead roles of Audrey and Seymour.

Billy Porter already signed up to play man-eating alien plant in the movie, Audrey 2.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the movie:
A meek florist who works at the aptly named Skid Row Florists, where he is under the thumb of the owner, Mr. Mushnik, but where he also is secretly in love with Audrey, who also works at the struggling shop. Seymour becomes a celebrity when discovers a venus flytrap-looking plant he dubs Audrey II, but his life becomes disastrously complicated when the plant demands to be fed human blood, and then eventually people themselves.”
Marc Platt, Sarah Schechter, and Berlanti are all producing the new version of Little Shop of Horrors which will start shooting this summer.
