Harry Styles As Prince Eric??

One Direction singer Harry Styles is in talks to play Prince Eric in Disney’s new live-action Little Mermaid, according to Variety.

Harry Styles has been in talks to join the Disney film, The Little Mermaid, as Prince Eric.

It’s unclear what other actors might be in talks to play Prince Eric, or when a final casting decision will be made.

What we do know for a fact that Halle Bailey will play Ariel. Melissa McCarthy is playing the evil Ursula. According to Variety writer Justin Kroll, the talks with Styles are “very early.”

Kroll said it’s possible that Styles “may still be on the fence” about joining the movie.

Rob Marshall has previously directed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Into the Woods, and Mary Poppins Returns.

The film will use songs from the 1989 original movie. As well as with new ones from Disney legend Alan Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

It was recently reported that Awkwafina and Jacob Tremblay are in discussions to play Scuttle and Flounder, respectively.

As for Styles, he appeared in Christopher Nolan’s war movie Dunkirk. He reportedly tested for Elvis in Baz Luhrmann’s biopic, but the role ultimately went to Austin Butler.

Variety’s writer, Justin Kroll, said Harry Styles was “the choice” for Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid for “a while,” but things got complicated when he tested for Elvis. “Styles was the choice for a while but there were rumblings he was expected to pass, in hopes he would get Elvis instead,” Kroll said. “Sounds like he smartly held the offer until the ELVIS decision was made and went with his next option.”

Harry Styles would be a great Eric, though I would put in a word for Shawn Mendez…no shade!
