According to Taron Egerton, the remake of Little Shop of Horrors was postponed.
The Kingsman actor was scheduled to play alongside Chris Evans and Scarlet Johansson of Marvel, but the film has been postponed due to several reasons, among them the COVID epidemic.
"I don't understand it. There was so much goodwill around it, but it just wore out." Who knows if it will be renewed, but I can't help but feel that it will.
"I'm particularly interested when Chris Evans talks about it because he's keeping the hope alive and keeping that candle burning, but at the moment, my understanding is it's completely dormant."
He was supposed to play Seymour Krelborn, a florist who purchases a strange plant from a dissenting street vendor, which turns out to require human blood rather than water and sunlight.
"That is a role where I feel like I could do something with it that's not my thing," he said.
"I think it is time for a reboot. Some reboots are cynical, but others are inspired. I wish it would come back around, but it's out of my hands, unfortunately."
Egerton explained why he rejected playing Cyclops in Fox's X-Men prequel films elsewhere.
Egerton was asked why he chose not to play the superhero in a radio interview with Sway's Universe, and it's all to do with the character's lack of vision.
"I don't mind saying, that was a real conversation," he said. "And, to be honest, I've never said this myself, the reason that conversation never went any further is because I didn't want to play a character in a series of films where you don't see my eyes."
"For me, that I felt instinctively and creatively that the eyes are the windows to the soul." I don't know how, I wouldn't find that challenging, and I just didn't find it an appealing prospect.
"So it's not that they ever offered it to me, but there was a conversation."
The King's Man is now available on Disney+.
