Indie director heads under the sea for new Little Mermaid remake


It’s hard to imagine The Little Mermaid’s Ariel as anything other than the sweet, red-haired beauty she is.

However, when Sofia Coppola gets her hands on the Disney character, we might have a Hipster mermaid frolicking under the sea in an ‘ironic’ fashion instead.

The Indie director is set to bring a live-action version of The Little Mermaid to the big screen, and if her previous movies are any indication, we don’t think this will be anything like the 1989 Disney musical.

Considering Coppola’s super-hip approach to her films, which include Lost in Translation and most recently The Bling Ring, we might have a little mermaid who wishes she had legs, just so she can don a pair of skinny jeans.
