The latest rage in movies is to take old familiar fairy tales and give them a fresh, dark twist. We have three Snow White movies, two Oz remakes,and a villainous Peter Pan adaptation on the horizon to go along with Red Riding Hood which limped out of theaters earlier this year. Now, The Little Mermaid is getting the remake treatment, but it’s not the lobster-singing songfest that Disney brought us in 1989. In this version, a princess who tries to marry a prince learns she already has competition from a mermaid who has sacrificed everything to be with him. This version mirrors the original tale which found Sirenetta (not Ariel) in a love triangle that ends with her either murdering the Prince or dissolving “in the water like the foam on a wave.”
Shana Feste, who gave us Gwyneth Paltrow singing country songs in last year’s Country Strong, will be writing and directing this remake, titled Mermaid: A Twist on the Classic Tale, for Sony Pictures.
So what do you think? Up for a dark mermaid tale? Who would you like to see in the mermaid role?
