Rumors have been surfacing that a few notable actors will be cast in the upcoming Warner Bros. film adaptation, “Little Shop of Horrors.”

The film is still in the early stages of development, but Chris Evans himself has added to the buzzing speculation. He posted a link to The Hollywood Reporter story about his possible casting and captioned it with a tooth emoji and exclamation point, seemingly confirming the potential of his role.

“Little Shop of Horrors” is a movie based on a movie, based on a Broadway musical. The original story was a 1960 Roger Corman film that was later turned into a Broadway musical in 1982 and then adapted again into a film in 1986.

It’s the story of a man named Seymour who works in a floral shop and is pining after his co-worker Audrey who is in an abusive relationship with her dentist boyfriend, Orin Scrivell. Their lives are changed when Seymour discovers a venus flytrap that likes the taste of human blood.

It’s speculated that Evans might play the role of Orin Scrivell, Scarlett Johansson as Audrey and Taron Egerton as the lead role of Seymour. Broadway star and fashion icon Billy Porter is supposedly set to voice the venus flytrap.

Johansson and Egerton are each coming off of award show season. Although she didn't win, Johansson was nominated for two Oscars, one for “Jojo Rabbit” and one for “Marriage Story.” Egerton won a Golden Globe for “Rocketman.” Evans meanwhile, finished 2019 closing out his reign as Captain America with "Avengers: Endgame."

If the predicted cast is confirmed, this will be yet another film added to the list of Evans and Johansson's long history of starring opposite each other. They have teamed up in the past for the "Captain America" and "Avengers" franchises, as well as "The Nanny Diaries" (2007) and "The Perfect Score" (2004).

Though they're both known for their superhero roles, they both have love for music and musicals. Johansson sang "Set It All Free" from the soundtrack of the 2016 animated film "Sing" and released albums in 2008 and 2009. And while Evans may not have as much experience professionally, he did voice his desire to appear in a musical in a March 2019 interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

"I want to do a musical so badly, man," he said. "Someone told me they're [remaking] Little Shop of Horrors and I was like, 'Oh, can I be down? Please? Can I be the dentist?'"

Egerton, of course, showed off his musical chops on the big screen in last year's "Rocketman," where he sang Elton John's hits. Porter, meanwhile, has the most extensive musical background, having won a Tony for his role in "Kinky Boots" and releasing his latest single, "Love Yourself," in June.

The official casting is expected to be announced soon because the film begins shooting this summer.
