Rob Marshall Reportedly Considered to Direct "The Little Mermaid"

07 December, 2017, 02:10 | Author: Cecil Buchanan

Disney is aiming to make The Little Mermaid a part of our world, and the studio believes it has found the director who can make it happen.

Deadline reports that Chicago director Rob Marshall is now Disney's top choice to helm the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.

The adaptation will reportedly feature new songs by Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken. Should he accept the directing job, it would mark Marshall's fourth collaboration with Disney, having previously directed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Into the Woods with Mary Poppins Returns set to be release next year.

Marshall already got one Disney reboot under his belt - "Mary Poppins Returns", which stars Emily Blunt as a new version of the classic nanny character.

While everyone is buzzing about the overwhelming theatrical powerhouse Disney will become if it acquires the film, TV and worldwide assets of Fox, Disney's live action division has been putting together some blockbusters in its own right. Both of those films are spending a lot of resources on filming key underwater sequences, and after seeing how Justice League whiffed on its own Atlantis moments, I have to imagine the director of The Little Mermaid will want to make sure the "under the sea" portions of his or her movie are handled better than just tossing air bubbles in and calling it a day. That film is set for release December 25, 2018.

Are you ready for a live-action Little Mermaid to be part of your world, or are you exhausted of hearing about live-action remakes?

The next Disney animated classics that will receive the live-action treatment are The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau, Aladdin, starring Will Smith as Genie and directed by Guy Ritchie, Dumbo from Tim Burton and Mulan from Niki Caro.
