Sofia Coppola Is Directing a Live Action Adaptation of The Little Mermaid 

Written by Steven Panzarella(@ProCreateSteve)

A few weeks ago I had to be the Grinch and remind a number of friends that no clear source was announcing a reunion of Harry Potter stars for the live action adaptation of The Little Mermaid. Well maybe we are one step closer to that reunion as Deadline is reporting that Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation, The Bling Ring) is set to direct from the script written by Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks). Coppola replaces Joe Wright in the director’s chair after Wright began production on his Peter Pan adaptation Pan. According to Deadline the announcement of Coppola as director should streamline the production and make a casting announcement coming in the next few weeks. Emma Watson worked on The Bling Ring with Coppola and is featured in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah which hits theaters March 28th. Watson is also attached to a feature Beauty and The Beast project with Guillermo Del Toro which is still in the early stages, and if she does actually star in the darker adaptation of Beauty and The Beast I’d say it’s unlikely she also appears as Ariel in The Little Mermaid.

She would not be the wrong choice for the role and might want a reunion at least with her Bling Ring director but if I am a fan hoping for a reunion of Radcliffe and Watson I would not hold my breath. It is very rare if not nearly impossible to see a movie cast exactly how fans want so I'd say the chances are slim to none. Check back here for updates on the casting of The Little Mermaid.
