The prospect of a live-action The Little Mermaid flick has been touting about for a while now. Last year, Universal Studios was working on a movie with Chloë Grace Moretz as the lead star until she pulled out last September.
But unlike Beauty & The Beast and The Lion King, the fishy film will have less to do with the Disney rendition and more to do with the OG story (soz Ariel!).
The movie tells the story of a girl (Loreto Peralta) who finds a gorj woman who she soon discovers is actually a mermaid.
William Moseley (the babe who played Peter in The Chronicles of Narnia) stars as a reporter in search of the little mermaid, played by Poppy Drayton.
The flick is set to be released later this year – check out the epic trailer below:
