Live-Action "Little Mermaid" Movie in the Works

Posted: July 8th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Live-Action "Little Mermaid" Movie in the WorksSubmit Comment
Director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice) is attached to helm a live-action movie based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale "The Little Mermaid" from a script by Abi Morgan ("Brick Lane," "The Iron Lady").

The story, which centers on a young mermaid who gives up her life in the sea to gain the love of a prince, was first published in 1837 and has been adapted for the stage and screen numerous times.

This will be the first live-action feature film version to be made in the English language.

Oh my lords and garters .... say it isn't so!

Perhaps one Megan Fox could play Ariel. She wouldn't have to tan. And maybe this time that poor, poor girl could actually have a hit on her hands!

I was reading Cracked and find this... Spoiler Alert!

The Hans Christian Andersen's Ending:

After having her tail split in two by the evil sea witch's potion, the mermaid goes upon land and proceeds to bleed absolutely everywhere.

The prince, finding this delightfully amusing, commands her to dance for him while she grins and bears the excruciating pain.

Afterward, the mermaid finds out that the Prince is to marry another woman, and that if he does so she will dissolve into sea foam, but all can be saved if she can somehow persuade the Prince that she was the one who saved him from drowning. But she doesn't, and he gets married anyway. The sea witch tells the mermaid that in order for her to survive, she must kill him.

Instead of descending upon his sleeping body with an X-Acto knife, she instead chooses to believe in the power of love.

Unfortunately, this does the complete opposite of "work," and the mermaid dissolves. And since mermaids don't have souls (at least according to Hans Christian Andersen), she has to do 300 years of good deeds in order to earn one, only every time a child cries, she has to do an extra day for each teardrop.

Pretty damn hardcore story if you ask me...

I would atually find it f*cking hillarious if they actually got some real crabs to sing whatever f*cking song they sang in the disney version. Then again Lohvags crabs sing quite a bit so maybe they'll use them.

Wasn't this already made in the 80's called "Splash" or was that a re-imagining?

Let me guess....starring Kristen "Surprise! I have a Penis" Stewart and featuring other Twitwat stars too, right Disney? I'm calling it right now: whichever studio takes this WILL try to get Twilight involved.

Why yes, Dave

I do believe this was called Splash, starring the lovely Daryl Hannah and the ever more lovely Tom Hanks ... the mermaid was called Madison ...
