Joseph Gordon-Levitt is nowhere near done with his intense child star-turned-Tinseltown-guru transformation. This time, he's taking the driver's seat of a remake vehicle.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Levitt is teaming up with some successful Broadway showrunners to develop a reboot of the 1960 cult classic film "The Little Shop of Horrors" (which later became an off-Broadway production and then a 1986 Frank Oz movie) with the intention of starring in it.

Marc Platt ("Wanted," "Legally Blonde") will produce, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (playwright on Broadway's current "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark") is writing the script.

Levitt, meanwhile, aims to star as Seymour Krelboyne, the central nerdy character who must kill people in order to feed a bloodthirsty man-eating plant and maintain his floral shop's fortune and fame. The same role was previously portrayed by Jonathan Haze and Rick Moranis in the 1960 and 1986 films, respectively.

Levitt is also currently developing his own as-yet-untitled romantic comedy script, which he intends to direct and star in, and he'll be seen in three new flicks this summer — "The Dark Knight Rises" due in theaters July 20, "Premium Rush" which releases on Aug. 24, and "Looper," which will be on-screen Sept. 28.
