AceShowbiz - Lady GaGa may next jump in for a scare to follow up her critically acclaimed acting in "A Star Is Born". The Grammy Award-winning artist is said to have been offered a role in upcoming "Little Shop of Horrors" remake.
Us Weekly, which first reported the news, cannot confirm if the 33-year-old singer/actress has agreed to the gig, but a source says, "She's very interested to keep acting." The publication additionally speculates that GaGa may be offered the role of "Audrey, who works in a flower shop with Seymour, a guy who discovers a plant that feeds on human flesh and blood."
The original "Little Shop of Horrors" movie was released in 1960. The low-budget comedy film, written by Charles B. Griffith, was then turned into a Broadway musical in 1982. A rock musical comedy horror film based on the Broadway musical was released in 1986, directed by Frank Oz and starring Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Vincent Gardenia, Steve Martin and Levi Stubbs.
The upcoming "Little Shop of Horrors" reboot has been in development at Warner Bros. Pictures for several years now, with Greg Berlanti currently attached as director. There were rumors that Josh Gad and Rebel Wilson were being considered for the roles of Seymour and Audrey respectively, but Berlanti denied it. "I am working on a script for that with somebody right now, but there's no casting decisions that have been made," the "Life as We Know It" helmer said in 2017.
As for GaGa, she has not signed up any acting project yet after starring in the critically-acclaimed "A Star Is Born" remake, directed by her co-star Bradley Cooper. The two also sang in the musical romantic drama film, which earned eight nominations at the 91st Academy Awards. The movie won one Oscar fors Best Original Song for GaGa's "Shallow".
She told reporters at the 2018 Critics' Choice Awards about her passion in acting, "I will definitely continue acting. I love acting. I loved acting on 'American Horror Story' as the Countess for Ryan Murphy, and I loved acting in 'A Star Is Born' for Bradley Cooper." Praising the people she has worked with, she added, "It was a tremendous experience, and I want to continue to do more, but I am a bit spoiled. I've had some fantastic directors and fantastic visionaries."
