Harry Styles has reportedly signed on to play Prince Eric in Disney’s live action remake of “The Little Mermaid”.
Many fans were excited when the news emerged last month that the former One Direction singer was in talks for the role.
Today came the news that it is now official.
The development was carried by online news outlets,though Disney is yet to issue a definitive statement.
The movie, which is being directed by Rob Marshall, has already found its Ariel with R&B singer Halle Bailey.
Melissa McCarthy, Javier Bardem, Awkwafina and Jacob Tremblay have also reporetdly signed on for the project.
The alleged casting of Styles alongside Bailey seemingly hints that music may be a central component of the remake.
And despite being known for his music, Styles does have acting credit – he was part of an ensemble cast for Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed WW2 epic “Dunkirk” in 2017.
