Sofia Coppola to direct 'Little Mermaid'

The version of Little Mermaid that Sofia Coppola aims at directing will be one that contains live-action. The classic novel by Hans Christian Andersen will yet again materialize into an enchanting film. There is already a discussion taking place between Universal/Working Title and Sophia Coppola. The director pof Atonement, Joe Wright was directing the film prior to Sophia Coppola. Instead his new venture will be a modification of JM Barrie’s children’ stories, known as Pan.

The Little Mermaid has been under production, or at least under contemplation as a production since the past few years. Abi Morgan, one of its script writers claimed that the original fairytale is such a great masterpiece that they had to stick to its actual ending where the mermaid gives up her existence for love. Caroline Thompson, who wrote Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands and the Corpse Bride, is also going to help with the script. Considering that Sofia Coppola’s previous work had adult themes, this will be something new for her as well as the audience.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
