Shirley MacLaine to star in live-action Little Mermaid film

Shirley MacLaine has signed up to star in an upcoming live-action film based on classic tale The Little Mermaid.
The Oscar winner leads a cast featuring Poppy Drayton and child actress Loreto Peralta.
The movie is inspired by author Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale about a mystical sea siren who gives up her underwater life after she falls in love with a prince.
The new family film will feature Peralta as a young orphan who discovers an enchanting creature (Drayton), who she believes to be the real Little Mermaid. MacLaine will play an eccentric woman who has intimate knowledge of the story.
The veteran actress’ new project is the latest film to take on the iconic story – Kick-Ass star Chloe Grace Moretz will play the titular mermaid in a live-action version of The Little Mermaid, directed by filmmaker Rebecca Thomas.
