Chloe Grace Moretz is set to play Ariel in the upcoming live action adaptation of “The Little Mermaid” according to a report from Variety. The film will be based on the Hans Christian Andersen tale that follows a mermaid who wishes to become human after falling in love with the man she rescued at sea.

The film is set to be written by Richard Curtis with Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner producing. Liza Chasin and Amelia Granger will executive produce and Exec VP of Production Erik Baiers and creative executive Chloe Yellin will oversee the project for Universal.

It was originally helmed by the amazing Sofia Coppola before she dropped out earlier this year due to creative differences with the studios.

This film staring Moretz should not be confused with a competing picture staring Rosie Mac whioch is set to be release in 2016. Mac currently works Emilia Clarke’s “Game of Thrones” body double.

Moretz, who can be next seen in the 2016 film The 5th Wave, is currently filming Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. The Seth Rogen comedy in which Moretz could play a potential sorority girl, is set to be released May 20, 2016.

There is currently no potential release date for the Moretz “Little Mermaid” picture or a time frame for production.

Sony Picture has announced that they have delayed the big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, Carrie. The film was originally supposed to be released on March 15th but has been pushed back seven months to October 18th.

There is no word on why the film has been pushed back so far, but given the horror movie setting that is Carrie, releasing near Halloween doesn’t seem like a bad idea for the studio. The project has been generating buzz over the last few months as posters and teasers have been steadily released online. Halloween seems like the ideal time of the year for the film to hit theaters.

Carrie stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday, Alex Russell, Gabriella Wilde, Ansel Elgort and Julianne Moore.

In a small town of Chamberlain, Maine, teenager Carrie White (Chloe Grace Moretz), is a lonely and awkward high school girl who is constanly bullied by her peers led by the popular mean girl, Chris Hargensen (Portia Doubleday), at school and abused by the hands of her religious mother, Margaret White (Julianne Moore) at home. After participanting in mean prank towards Carrie, Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde), regrets their action and tries to make amends with Carrie by asking her popular boyfriend, Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to the prom. Meanwhile, Carrie starts to form a friendship with her gym teacher, Miss Desjardin (Judy Greer), who tries in vain to protect Carrie from Chris and her peers.

However, Chris, her boyfriend, Billy Nolan (Alex Russell), and their friends hatch a plan to humiliate Carrie at the prom. However, Carrie uses her telekinetic power for revenge.

The Kimberly Pierce directed adaptation is set to be more of direct remake of the original novel rather than a remake of the cult classic 1976 film.
