A few months ago, it was announced that director Sofia Coppola was going to create a live-action adaptation of the Disney classic, the Little Mermaid. We, of course, were super excited and a little skeptical. But mostly excited.
Today, Funny Or Die created a faux-trailer for what they think the new film will look like based on Coppola’s past work including Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette and The Bling Ring. The results? Pretty effing spot on.
With a notable soundtrack copy and pasted from some of her previous films, including Phoenix (Coppola is married to lead singer Thomas Mars), actors Evan Peters and AnnaSophia Robb act out a perfect mix of the Eric and Ariel while adopting modern-day personalities that would fit right in with a Coppola flick.
