Harry Styles Could Be Prince Eric in 'The Little Mermaid'

By

Harry Styles is currently in casting talks to play Prince Eric for The Little Mermaid's live-action film. The former One Direction member has sparked the studio's interest and, if casted, he will play alongside Halle Bailey, once of Beyonce's prodigies. 

If you've seen the original version of The Little Mermaid or you're just a huge Harry Styles fan, playing Prince Eric is a big deal. Prince Eric was Princess Ariel's love interest. The two met when mermaid Ariel saved Eric from drowning. Having been caught up in love at first sight, Ariel makes a deal with Ursula, a sea witch, who exchanges Ariel's voice for human legs. With a better connection to the human world, Ariel tries to win over the man she laid eyes on.
