By the looks of the Funny or Die 'Little Mermaid' parody, filming on Sophia Coppola's real life adaptation of the classic fairy tale is already underway. Starring AnnaSophia Robb as Ariel and Evan Peters as Price Eric, the story is given a modern youthful twist as per the American director's signature style. Most of which revolves around an extensive soundtrack.
Living at the bottom of a pool instead of the vast see, Ariel is portrayed as much more flakey as the Disney version. Wearing a red wig in the Funny or Die 'Little Mermaid' parody, she fawns over Prince Eric while trying to better understand the world above water. Quirky and fun in a variety of ways, it will get people pumped for the real deal.
