Rob Marshall set to direct live-action Little Mermaid

December 10th, 2017 by Marc Comments

It looks like director Rob Marshall is set to go underwater at Disney.

The director has already done three big projects at Disney including Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Into The Woods and the upcoming Mary Poppins Returns, so he is no stranger to the house of mouse.

According to the report: “I’ve heard that Marshall has been offered the movie, is reading the Jane Goldman script and will take until after the holidays to decide. Sources expect him to board the project right after the new year.”

While he seems like a safe bet, we reckon there’s a pretty strong chance he’ll accept the gig…

Thoughts on his possible appointment?

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….
