Chloe Moretz is set to play the title character in the live-action film version of the classic Hans Christian Andersen story “The Little Mermaid” at Working Title and Universal Pictures.
Not much is known about how this adaptation will vary from the usual story of a mermaid who wished to become human after falling in love with a man she saved from drowning. It is NOT a live-action adaptation of the Disney animated feature though.
Richard Curtis is in talks to pen the script while Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce. Director Sofia Coppola was previously attached but after creative differences.
