Chloe Grace Moretz is set to star in “The Little Mermaid,” the live-action movie from Universal and Working Title that Sofia Coppola was previously attached to direct.
The script is expected to be penned by “Love Actually” writer Richard Curtis. Moretz was seen on the New York stage in 2014 in The Library at The Public Theater.
The 18-year-old actress announced the news on Twitter on Friday. “Been waiting a long time to tell you guys !!,” Moretz tweeted. “ #TheLittleMermaid going to be a beautiful experience! Can’t wait to show everyone my Mermaid!”
Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are producing while Liza Chasin and Amelia Granger will executive produce.
