Chloe Grace Moretz has been cast as the live-action Little Mermaid in Universal’s much anticipated new movie.
The previous Kick Ass star, 30 Rock, and 18, that has appeared in Hugo, and has also starred in the remake of the horror movie Carrie, will play Ariel in the film reboot based on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairytale.
“Been waiting quite a long time to share with you guys !!” Moretz said via Twitter as she made the announcement on Friday, Nov. 7. “#TheLittleMermaid going to be a beautiful experience!
But while the Little Mermaid’s star has been got by it, the film project is still in search of a director after the springtime was dropped outback in by Sofia Coppola. The script continues to be written by Richard Curtis, of Four Weddings and a Funeral fame, as well as the movie will likely be created by Working Title and Universal.
