According to Variety, Warner Bros. is in the process of reviving LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, and has tasked Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to write it.

Aguirre-Sacasa recently penned the CARRIE remake for Sony; he's also currently a producer on "Glee" and worked as a story editor on HBO's "Big Love" for several years.

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, as you no doubt know, centers on a meek florist who must kill in order to satisfy his "mean green mother" of a giant Venus fly trap plant. Originally made by Roger Corman as a two-day quickie, the story went on to inspire an Off-Broadway musical and a big-budget film directed by Frank Oz and starring Rick Moranis.

No word on whether or not this will be a musical, but if they hired a "Glee" writer, it's a good bet.
