May 25th, 2016 by Marc Comments


With the teaser for Beauty and the Beast doing big business this week for Disney, it looks like another of their iconic animated movies may be set for the live-action treatment soon.

According to Deadline The Little Mermaid is looking like it could be heading to the big screen with a whole new take.

According to the report “Disney chiefs recently heard a new take and are currently evaluating whether to proceed with the idea. Deadline understands that initial discussions have also taken place with major producers, including some with a strong connection to the studio.”

The story Aerial, the singing mermaid, is also being given the big screen treatment by Universal which has Chloe Grace Moretz starring in a story by Richard Curtis.

Whatever the weather, things always seem to be fine under the seas, huh?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
