Here we go again: Warner Bros. is ready to remake "Little Shop of Horrors" ... for the second time.

The studio has the project in the works with Greg Berlanti directing and Matthew Robinson penning the script, Deadline reports. The new version will be based on the 1986 film, which succeeded the original 1960 film in a roundabout way; the remake was actually based on an off-Broadway musical of the same name, which was in turn based on the 1960 film. Ah, such a complicated history.

Like the Frank Oz-directed 1986 remake, the new version will be a musical horror comedy. You can rest assured that there will be plenty of song and dance as the characters deal with the shop's carnivorous plant.

So far, there are no actors attached, but whoever signs on will have to fill the giant shoes of Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Steve Martin, and Bill Murray.
