Working Title Films is collaborating with director Joe Wright to make a live-action film version of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale “The Little Mermaid.” The screenplay has been written by scribe Abi Morgan. It tells the classic tale of a young mermaid who gives up her life in the sea to love a human prince. Andersen’s story was first published in 1837 and has been adapted numerous times for stage and screen. Wright’s version is inspired by a children’s puppet theatre production of the classic at London’s Little Angel Theatre Company.
