Well this is exciting! Director Sofia Coppola – who knocked our socks off with Marie Antoinette and The Bling Ring – has signed on to direct a live-action version of beloved children’s classic The Little Mermaid.
I don’t know about you, but I think this is definitely going to be one of the most interesting live-action remakes of a Disney classic that we’ll see… possibly ever. The biggest challenge? Well – a significant portion of the movie will feature a mermaid under water. How the heck are they going to pull that off?
It looks like this flick is definitely going to go ahead, although no casting decisions have been made yet – but there’s already plenty of speculation as to which actors and actresses would be the perfect Ariel and Prince Eric.
