Sofia Coppola is making a movie of The Little Mermaid with real human beings. And she’s just made a really brilliant casting decision. One that combines diversity and fairytales.
Androgynous model Andre Pejic will star as Mermaid Sister Number Four.
And. We. Love. It.
The 22-year-old Bosnian-born Aussie model became famous in 2011 when she spoke out about living between genders.has And she’s confirmed to play one of Ariel’s sisters.
Pejic is not just a beautiful face – she’s also an actor, having starred in David Bowie’s “The Stars (Are Out Tonight),” a movie and a TV show.
But this? This is really something else. The is mermaid-level good.
We still don’t know who will play Ariel but might we suggest Emma Stone? And maybe Uma Thurman as Ursula? Sam Claflin as Eric?
It was announced in March that Sofia Coppola jumped on board to create a live-action version of the classic Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale.
Make this movie fast, Coppola. We ‘d like to watch it immediately.
