Emma Watson Leads 'Little Mermaid' Casting Rumors

Emma Watson is at the front of a lot of dream cast lists once again, this time for Sofia Coppola‘s The Little Mermaid.

Speaking with Variety, the 23-year-old actress admitted that she already has the costume for it — but it might not fit her anymore.

“I actually dressed up as Ariel for my fifth birthday,” Emma admitted.

Based off of Hans Christian Anderson‘s fairy tale of the same name, the story centers on the mermaid who makes a bargain to live on land after she falls in love.

    I would rather see Georgie Henley, but she’s studying at Cambridge now so… But she could probably still do it.

  • Maddie

    No way! Emma Watson is all wrong for the part! Why do they feel the need to ruin disney classics by remaking them! So bloody annoying!

  • Chris

    Emma is going to play Belle in Del Toro’s adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, as well as a princess in Queen of the Tearling, she’s not going to play a THIRD princess role.

    No way! Ariel NEEDS to be a redhead! Ariana Grande, with her hair like it was on Victorious is PERFECT. But other redheads would do

  • Lisa

    @Maddie: You are so WRONG, Emma will be GREAT.

  • Lisa

    Emma is so A W E S O M E .

    Does she even have red hair now?

    How about Amy McAdams, Bella Thorne, or Emma Stone?

  • suzane

    bella thorne. she already has the mermaid pictures online. she’s a great mermaid.

  • Louisa Gonzales

    Holland Roden, would be perfect!

  • Chelsea

    I think it needs to be someone similar to Emma, especially since this is not going to be a REMAKE of the Disney classic. This is not going to be a children’s film! She needs to be classic but believably young. Emma Watson is on the top of my list, Kate Mara, or Evan Rachel Wood? or someone new!

    You know who would be great, or rather look amazing as Ariel? Ariel Winter. Those boobs… oh lord. But Emma will do just fine. I would love to see her show some skin ;)

    Of course someone has to say Ariana Grande! 1. She can sing 2. She’s gorgeous 3. We’ve already seen her with red hair! Emma’s been in a lot of good movies, so she could give it to someone who hasn’t been in the movie seen yet!
