Dark Remake of "The Little Mermaid" in the Works

Posted: May 23rd, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Dark Remake of "The Little Mermaid" in the WorksSubmit Comment
"Country Strong" director Shana Feste has been hired to write and direct a dark re-telling of "The Little Mermaid," based on Carolyn Turgeon's novel "Mermaid: A Twist on the Classic Tale."

The new live-action movie follows a princess who, in order to save her ravaged kingdom, sets out on a dangerous journey to marry the prince of her rival kingdom, not knowing that a beautiful mermaid has fallen for the same man and sacrificed everything to be with him.

Tobey Maguire is producing. The project is set up at Sony Pictures.

If an unclean woman smells like tuna, what does an unclean mermaid smell like? Sardines? Lady Garbage?

Great here's just another example of why Holy-wood is losing its creativity.

I guess thats why we have Friday 13th movie 22, Saw 15, Harry Pothead 32, etc

We first here of using Peter Pan as some ax-murderer or whatever that new film is about him

Now its the Little Mermaid has a dark side

I guess The Terminator will join the Dali Lama in meditation

Give me a break

Is originality really that hard to come by these days?

I bet this came about after watching a screening of Pirates 4.

For starters, mentioning Tobey Maguire only makes me wanna watch the movie less. Secondly, if its rated R and we see fully nude mermaids, I will definitely give this a rub.... pun intended.

Can't they make a feature with only the webslinging vampire-mermaids from "PotC: On Stranger Tides" instead?

Most fairy tales are altered versions of darker adult stories (thanks to the Brother's Grim fro removing the murder, sex, and curelty from them and turning them into what Disney has profited on.) The characters are not original, but Hollywood using their origin is something fresh and different, though they seem to just be making up sh*t and putting out crap. (Peter Pan was never a dark story though...)

I'd like to see someone turn Anne Rice's "Claiming Of Sleeping Beauty" series into a movie... Oh wait, that was pretty much total erotica.

I think Troy McClure should play the lead man.
