Filmmaker SOFIA COPPOLA is reportedly in talks to direct a live-action version of THE LITTLE MERMAID.
British director Joe Wright had been attached to the film, but dropped out to concentrate on his new Peter Pan prequel, Pan.
If Coppola signs on for the project, it will be the latest film version of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale – the most successful of which is Disney’s 1989 animated adaptation.
