Harry Styles is reportedly in talks to play Prince Eric in the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.

After failing to land the role of Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming biopic, it’s believed the former One Direction singer is in early negotiations with Disney – according to The Hollywood Reporter.

If he manages to secure the role, Harry will star alongside singer Halle Bailey, who has already been cast as Ariel.

The live-action remake, which is being directed by Rob Marshall, is also set to star Melissa McCarthy, Jacob Tremblay and Awkwafina.

Of course, this won’t be Harry’s first venture into acting, as he made his debut in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk back in 2017.

The star was praised for his breakout role, and the film nabbed several Academy Awards.
