A Live Action Little Mermaid Movie Just Got The Green Light! Here's 6 Actors & Actresses Who Would Be PERFECT For Ariel & Prince Eric!

sofia coppola set to make live action little mermaid

Ooooooooh how exciting!!

It's just been announced that Sofia Coppola is set to bring a live-action version of The Little Mermaid to the big screen!

If her previous movies are any indication, we don't think this will ANYTHING like the Disney movie!

But that doesn't mean we're not excited for it anyway!

However, it makes us wonder how she'll decide to bring the story to the big screen…

Will she reinterpret it? Will it be a kid-friendly version? Will it be a musical?!?!

Even if it's completely different, we've picked out six actors & actresses who would be the PERFECT pairs to play Ariel & Prince Eric for the upcoming film no matter what direction she decides to take!

Find out if you agree (or disagree) with our picks…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

If she wants to go for a couple that look PERFECT for the roles, then she's gotta go with Amy Adams & Zachary Levi! Just look at them!

With it being 2014 & all, maybe Sofia will want to add the hipster element to the story so she should definitely cast Emma Stone & the love of our lives, Zac Efron!

If Sofia wants to go with more of a kid-friendly version of the film then her perfect Ariel would definitely be Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner & Prince Eric would HAVE to be Teen Wolf's Dylan O'Brien!

There's the possibility of the film being a musical and if that's the case there couldn't be a more perfect pairing than Anna Kedrick & Joseph Gordon-Levitt!

If she's gonna make it more, errr, sexy than normal, we think she's gotta go with Christina Hendricks & Ian Somerhalder for the leads! Who ELSE oozes as much sexiness as them!

Finally, there's also the possibility that she'll want to take the film in a more Sci-Fi direction and who knows that better than the former stars of Doctor Who, Karen Gillan & Arthur Darvill! They'd be perfect!

    thank god you are not a cast director Perez! your only good choice was Amy Adams but still…..

    Stupidest idea ever. Bad enough that they can't come up with an original story, but to do a story that has been done countless times is just idiotic. And between the Alice & Wonderland and the Maleficent live action remakes, I see people are just thumbing through the Disney catalogue for a quick money scheme, since Disney fairy tales will ALWAYS be a draw at the box office. Well done. Such a unique and individual director you are. You are changing the game! Give me a break.

    You just picked red headed actresses! People can change their hair color you know…

    Alyssa Milano should definetly be on this list, as she is the original muse for the development of Ariels looks and beuty. Also, she did play a mermaid once on Charmed, and did a great job at it.

    I'll go for the musical pair; kindly please click this link thank you.

  7. lori says – reply to this


    What? No Darren Criss on the list? Come in he's perfect for the role!!

    *come on*

    isla fisher and sacha baron cohen, two very under rated actors.

  10. chris says – reply to this


    I don't think the major characters will be named Ariel & Eric. Definitely this won't be Disneyfied. I really wish they stick to the original Hans Christian Anderson story.

  11. lisa says – reply to this


    the original tale is depressing. I like thr disney version and am interested in where they will take this.. I agree Ian would be an awesome prince.

    Re: chris

  12. Yvette says – reply to this


    How about Matt Bomer? He looks just like prince Eric.

  13. Kristin Walters says – reply to this


    So I love Ian Somerhaulder… love. BUT I love The Little Mermaid more. I mean you have to keep them young because that's how it was back then. "Ariel" was 16 in the original. The girl from GoT is a gorgeous and a good actress but the other choices suck… Ian does not equal "Eric" and I love OUaT's Hook but I just don't feel he'd be up for it.

    And also Beauty and the Beast is going Live action with Emma Watson.

  14. James says – reply to this


    Zack Effron? Kill yourself.

  15. Sam says – reply to this


    Re: James – +1 You should kill yourself for suggesting Zack Efron.

  16. Ali says – reply to this


    Isla Fisher for Ariel!

  17. Gray LeBlanc says – reply to this


    PLEASE let Jessica Lange be cast as Ursula!!!!!!

  18. bridget says – reply to this


    Catherine McPhee - Ariel
    Ian Harding or Matthew Goode- Eric
    Brooke Elliott– Ursula
    Eric Bana- king triton

  19. ughwhyme says – reply to this


    They can't have Ian Somerhalder as the prince because everyone's brain would explode. My god, teenager girls would say screw twilight and yay little mermaid….on second thought this needs to happen!

  20. kik4 says – reply to this


    After oscar´14, I couldn't stop thinking of emma watson and joseph gordon levit.

  21. julia says – reply to this


    Matt Bomer and Amy Adams !!!

  22. lina says – reply to this


    ian somerhaulder and christina hendricks

  23. lina says – reply to this

    amy and ian!!!!

  26. Ricky Lopez says – reply to this


    Hands down Bonnie Wright (Ginny weasley) would be the PERFECT Ariel!! Check her picture on my IG page @rickylop89 they need to cast her!!

  27. Ricky says – reply to this


    Bonnie Wright!! <3

  28. Katie says – reply to this


    Definitely either pair #1 or #2 would be the best, although #1 is my first pick. Fingers crossed….

    Ariana Grande and Dylan O'Brien!!!

  30. Miranda says – reply to this


    Emma Watson, should play Ariel
