William Moseley (“The Chronicles of Narnia,” “The Royals”) will join Shirley MacLaine and Poppy Drayton in Chris Bouchard’s live-action family adventure “A Little Mermaid” at MVP Studios.
Blake Harris’ script is inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale and has Moseley playing a reporter who travels with his younger sister (Loreto Peralta) to a small Southern town where they discover an enchanting creature (Drayton) they believe to be the real ‘Little Mermaid.’
MacLaine portrays an eccentric woman who has intimate knowledge of the story. Diahann Carroll, William Forsythe and Gina Gershon also star. Robert Molloy and Armando Gutierrez are producing the film which recently began production in Georgia.
This is not to be confused with the Chloe Moretz-led live-action adaptation in the works at Universal.
