No doubt Harry Styles would have made best Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid live action. But the Hollywood heartthrob has passed on the role of Prince Eric. Now the studio has started looking at others for the prince.
Some of the shortlisted actors for the role of Prince Eric are listed below:-
1. Keanu Reeves
Having Keanu Reeves in one of the action remakes would be so lucky for the movie. He has got all the qualities to be Prince Eric. He has ideal hair for being Prince; his hair is undoubtedly going to achieve 90s look.
2. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Eric has got the best dimples of all the Disney Princes so does Gordon. If makers look for a dimple actor he would be best to play this role. Eric’s dimple comes out when he gives a big smile, and the same case is with Gordon.
Halle Bailey will portray the role of Ariel, an ordinary mermaid princess who has unfulfilled dreams of living life like an ordinary human being, while as reported Melissa McCarthy has been cast to play the role of her evil aunt, Ursula.
The remake of 1989’s classic in a live-action “The Little Mermaid” will be directed by Rob Marshall and has been penned by David Magee.
The movie will have original songs that were once part of the 1989 animated classic hit and as well as new tunes from original composer Alan Menken with lyrics by “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. Miranda will be also acting as the producer of the film along with Marshall, Marc Platt, and John DeLuca. Jessica Virtue and Allison Ehrlichman are overseeing for the studio.
Though the giant studio house does not yet decide information about the actor who might be playing the role of Prince Eric, we hope we get a name on top of the list soon.
