HARRY STYLES As Prince Eric In ‘The Little Mermaid’ Is Not Happening
Well, this is sad! We have to forget daydreaming about Harry Styles in the white shirt and blue pants combo because he has apparently turned down the role of Prince Eric in the upcoming live action remake of The Little Mermaid.
Per Variety, sources said that "initial reports about his casting were premature and that Styles made the decision to move on amicably." The Wrap also noted that the One Direction member "is a fan of the project but respectfully declined."
In early July, Disney announced that Halle Bailey, one-half of the American R&B duo Chloe x Halle, has been cast as Ariel. Mary Poppins Returns director Rob Marshall will be helming the live-action reimagination of the classic animated movie.
