Disney May Cast Harry Styles as Prince Eric in 'The Little Mermaid'
Disney May Cast Harry Styles as Prince Eric in 'The Little Mermaid' According to 'The Hollywood Reporter,' Styles is in negotiations to play the titular mermaid's love interest. He has also begun to break into the world of acting, with his big screen debut in 2017's 'Dunkirk.' Should he land the part of Prince Eric, Styles would star opposite Halle Bailey's Ariel. Despite the original movie's numerous songs, Prince Eric did not sing in the original 1989 film. But with Styles' musical capabilities, that could easily change in the upcoming remake. Along with Bailey's own singing talent, the pair could easily team up for memorable new tracks. 'The Little Mermaid' will begin filming in early 2020.
