Disney to make live-action version of The Little Mermaid

Disney is in talks to make a live-action version of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid.
Production chiefs recently heard a new take and are currently evaluating whether to proceed with the idea, reported Deadline. Initial discussions have also taken place with major producers, including some with a strong connection to the studio.

If Disney executives decide to move forward, they’ll compete against an existing live-action project being led by Working Title and set up at Universal. The Universal project has Chloe Moretz attached to star and Rebecca Thomas set to direct from a script by Richard Curtis.

Following the recent success of The Jungle Book, Disney is moving forward expansively with its live-action slate in general. Its upcoming movies include Alice Through the Looking Glass, Pete’s Dragon and Beauty and the Beast (2017).
