Chloë Moretz To Star In A Live Action Feature Of ‘The Little Mermaid’

According to a review in Variety, Universal Pictures is going ahead with a live-action version of Disney’s 1989 animated classic The Little Mermaid which will star 18 year old Kick Ass star Chloë  Moretz who we all love.

Originally, the picture was going to be headed by director and screenwriter Sophia Coppola but she departed the project this past summer citing creative differences (which may be related to Moretz’s casting, but who knows). Instead, Richard Curtis (director of Love Actually) will be heading the project.

It’s unsure when the new film will hit theaters but we are really psyched.
