emma watson live action little mermaid rumors

Oooooooohh! This is innnneresting!!

We reported the other day that Emma Watson is rumored to be cast as the Ariel to Sofia Coppola's Little Mermaid, and it seems like the Harry Potter actress is neither confirming NOR denying those whispers!

So, what did Em do when she was asked about those casting rumors on the red carpet for her film Noah?

She TOTALLY played the coy card and kept her lips sealed… well, kind of!!

She said:

"I actually dressed up as Ariel for my fifth birthday… I mean I’d have to read it first. I love Sofia so much.”

Perhaps this is her subtle way of saying she's waiting to receive the script for review?!

Hmmmmm, it IS plausible that Sofia would offer her the role, since they worked together on The Bling Ring!

We hope it's true!! We can totally see Emma as Ariel!

Plus, she'd look FAB as a red head, don't ya think???

    Emma also said last year that she hadn't been given a script for 50 Shades of Grey either, are you implying that she was interested in that too? Emma was very politely saying that all the rumors were false and I think you are reading WAY too much into it. Besides, Emma is playing Belle in Del Toro's Beauty and the Beast adaption as well as the lead character in Queen of the Tearling, why would she agree to play a THIRD princess character?

    The Little Mermaid is a Hans Chris Andersen short tale, not a Disney story. Ariel is NOT her name in the original tale which S. Coppola is working on . I dont even think she's a red head. Which makes this article hilarious.

    Re: Delburden – I agree it is annoying hearing him refer to this film as if it were the Disney version. Everything I've heard says it's NOT that version at all.

    No I don't think it should be her Ariel has red hair and blue eyes not brown eyes.
