Former Captain America and Avengers star Chris Evans is in talks to star in the upcoming Little Shop of Horrors remake.
Last year Chris Evans officially passed his Captain America shield in Avengers: Endgame to Anthony Mackie’s Falcon. Since departing the role, Chris Evans has been taking on roles that seem intent to put as much distance between himself and the Captain America persona as possible. Last year he played Ransom Drysdale in Rian Johnson’s Knives Out who was about as Captain America’s opposite as you can possibly imagine. Now Chris Evans is in talks for an equally despicable role in the upcoming Little Shop of Horror remake.
According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Chris Evans is in talks to play dentist Orin Scrivello in the Little Shop Of Horrors remake. In the 1986 version of Little Shop Of Horrors, the character was a sadistic dentist who delighted in causing people pain and became a dentist for that reason. In the Frank Oz directed version of Little Shop of Horrors, the character was famously played by Steve Martain. He was ultimately fed to Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors. But now it seems that Chris Evans may want to take a shot at the iconic Little Shop of Horrors character.
