the little mermaid
Universal's 'The Little Mermaid' is not swimming along smoothly, as Sofia Coppola has left the film's director chair.
Sofia Coppola (The Bling Ring) is in talks to direct a live-action adaptation of 'The Little Mermaid' from a script by Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks).
After many years in development, the live-action adaptation of 'The Little Mermaid' is back on track with Joe Wright in the director's seat and Kelly Marcel rewriting the script.
'Country Strong' filmmaker Shana Feste has been hired on to write and direct 'Mermaid', an adaptation of author Carolyn Turgeon's dark retelling of 'The Little Mermaid.'
