THE DAILY LASH

Think. Rant. Post. Repeat.

Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid” has been picked by Sony to be the latest storybook favorite to get a disturbing reimagination.

A feature film adaptation of Carolyn Turgeon’s book Mermaid: A Twist on the Classic Tale – a “dark retelling” of the classic children’s story is reportedly in the works.

The Hollywood Reporter offers a synopsis:

It centers on a princess who, in order to save her ravaged kingdom, sets out on a dangerous journey to marry the prince of her rival kingdom, not knowing that a beautiful mermaid has fallen for the same man and has sacrificed everything to be with him.

Country Strong director Shana Feste is set to helm, which may or may not tell you everything you need to know about how much worse this could get.

This might not end well.
