Hint, hint, Disney!
Lindsay Lohan would like to star in the rumored live-action version of The Little Mermaid and she’s not afraid to let everyone know!
The actress posted a side-by-side of herself and the iconic Disney character on her Instagram Sunday in what many believe is her way of campaigning for the role.
Lindsay even admitted as much in an interview given to a Turkish TV station while discussing her humanitarian work, confessing she’s done with Disney movies, but also saying:
“I would love to play The Little Mermaid one day.”
Well, she definitely has the voluminous tresses required, but she’s also 30 and probably a little too old to play a teenager. Of course Ariel’s age would probably be more advanced in the actual film.
But will there even be a movie???
In an interview with Vulture in November, Lin-Manuel Miranda had this to say about the fledgling project:
“We’re in super-early talks ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I literally don’t have a title for what my job on The Little Mermaid is yet. Right now, it’s the guy who wears the ‘don’t mess it up’ hat. If I could sign a contract with that job title on it, that would be great! But that’s sort of where we are.”
We have a feeling Disney might go with an unknown for the coveted title role, but don’t stop dreaming, LiLo!
