A couple more actors are looking at going under the sea for Disney.
Deadline reports that Oscar winner Javier Bardem and Harry Styles are in talks to join the upcoming live-action remake The Little Mermaid. Bardem would play Ariel’s father, King Triton, while Styles would play Ariel’s love interest, Prince Eric.
Rob Marshall is directing the live-action/CGI feature from a script by David Magee.
I’m totally down for both of these castings to get finalized. Styles held his own against a group of veterans in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, despite his small role. I’d like to see what Styles could accomplish with a larger role. Of course, any film that can snag Bardem is worth the watch.
Do you think Harry Styles should be Prince Eric? Think Bardem can grow a worthy King Triton beard?
