The live-action adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen classic, "The Little Mermaid," may have finally found its director. The Wrap reports that director Rebecca Thomas, who has previously helmed the 2012 indie film "Electrick Children," is in talks to take over the director's chair for the upcoming "Little Mermaid" film after Sofia Coppola dropped out of the project.
The movie, which will be produced by Working Title Films and distributed by Universal Pictures, will star Chloe Grace Moretz as the beloved mermaid. Veteran screenwriter Richard Curtis, whose previous works include "Love Actually" and "Notting Hill," is on board to pen the script.
