Deadline is reporting that Disney are moving ahead with plans to bring a live action version of the Little Mermaid to the big screen.

According to the site, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken will be working together to create a blend of old and new songs that will be featured in the film.

Universal Pictures and Working Title have also been in development on their own Little Mermaid project with Chloe Grace Moretz set to star and Rebecca Thomas directing from a screenplay by Richard Curtis.

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s Danish fairy tale, the Little Mermaid tells the story of a 16-year-old mermaid princess named Ariel who longs to be human.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
