Sofia Coppola Â… 'It sounded like it had all the elements for a fun pop movie.'

Just the thought of this intrigues me. I am a HUGE fan of Sofia Coppola. I love the way her movies look, feel. They may not be the best movies I’ve ever seen, but I generally really like her.

According to, Sofia is in negotiations to adapt a live-action versioni of ‘The Little Mermaid.’ Interesting, no?

This version isn’t a Disney special, however, meaning the songs that have come to define “The Little Mermaid” probably won’t be featured. Adapted from Hans Christian Andersen’s much darker 1837 fairy tale, the Universal Pictures/Working Title production is based on a script by Caroline Thompson (“Edward Scissorhands,” “The Secret Garden”) that saw original drafts by Kelly Marcel (“Saving Mr. Banks,” “Fifty Shades of Grey”) and Abi Morgan (“The Iron Lady,” “Shame”). Coppola is stepping in for Joe Wright (“Pride & Prejudice,” Atonement”), who was previously eyeing the director’s chair. (Wright, meanwhile, is set to direct an update of “Peter Pan.”)

There’s no release date or casting notices as of yet, but indicates the plan for “Mermaid” is to “move quickly.” Either way, don’t expect any “Kiss the Girl” sing-alongs here.
