Among the many classic animated movies Disney is planning to bring into the live-action arena is The Little Mermaid. However, they’ve been beaten to the punch by a rather different film that may share the same title but isn’t exactly Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved tale – although it certainly share a similar inspiration.
The film stars William Moseley, Loreto Peralta, Poppy Drayton, Gina Gershon and Shirley MacLaine. It follows a reporter and his niece who go to a circus in Mississippi. There they discover a creature they think might be a real mermaid. It does look a little cheesy, but it might be a decent family film.
Take a look at the trailer below. It’ll be released later this year.
