Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid

Back in 2010 we found out about a new live-action movie adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen‘s fairy tale The Little Mermaid being developed by Atonement and Hanna director Joe Wright for Universal Pictures and Working Title Films.

Much time has passed and and Wright is no longer attached, but now a new director has stepped in. It’s being reported that Sofia Coppola, writer and director of Lost in Translation (which she won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for), will now direct the movie.

Other movies Coppola has written and directed include The Virgin Suicides, Marie Antoinette, Somewhere, and The Bling Ring. She’s also done some acting, including in the Godfather trilogy (directed by her father, Francis Ford Coppola), Peggy Sue Got Married (also directed by her father), Tim Burton’s original Frankenweenie short, and Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace.

The script, which follows a mermaid who makes a deal to live on land after she falls in love, is currently being rewritten by Caroline Thompson. Thompson’s previous credits include Edward Scissorhands, The Addams Family, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Corpse Bride.
