The first trailer for a live-action film based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, has been released.
There seems to be a few Little Mermaid’s in the sea as this adaption comes from Conglomerate Media and Kingsway Productions. There is an official Disney live-action film in the works with Lin-Manuel Miranda and another was previously in the works by Universal until Chloe Moretz dropped out of the film last year.
In this reimagining of the classic tale a young girl and her reporter brother travel to a small Mississippi town to meet a woman believed to be a mermaid of legend. The film stars William Moseley (Narnia), Poppy Drayton (The Shannara Chronicles) and Shirley MacLaine.
The Little Mermaid is slated for release in mid-2017.
