Harry Styles is reportedly in talks to play Prince Eric in the live action/CGI remake of Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

According to Deadline, the former One Direction singer didn’t want to commit to the project until he found out if he was chosen to portray Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s forthcoming biopic. That role went to Austin Butler.

The Little Mermaid remake is set to be directed by Rob Marshall and will star Halle Bailey as Ariel, Awkwafina as Scuttle and Canada’s Jacob Tremblay as Flounder.

Disney’s animated version of The Little Mermaid was released in 1989. It was based on the 1837 fairy tale by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen.
