The infamous story, best known for the Disney animated film of the same name, is apparently also looking at Richard Curtis to write the script, according to Variety.
Besides that, though, there's not a lot yet to go on regarding details about what to expect in the classic tale, originally created by Hans Christian Andersen, or when we can hope to see it in theaters!
Earlier this year, director Sofia Coppola walked away from the project after deciding it wasn't for her; according to some sources, Coppola may have walked away because she disagreed with casting Moretz, who had been the frontrunner for the role for some time.

Currently, Moretz is busy filming Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, and just finished Brain on Fire. She'll also be seen very soon in The Fifth Wave and November Criminals.
What do U think of having Moretz in on the live-action cut of The Little Mermaid??
