With the thirst for reboots, retellings and revisions hitting the Industry its no surprise that yet another twisted version of a classic fairytale is heading our way. This new movie from Sony is based on Carolyn Turgeon’s novel Mermaid: A Twist on the Classic Tale. The Novel bears little resemblance to the Hans Christian Andersen classic and shifts the story’s narrative focus. Told from the perspective of a Princess, who in order to save her ravaged kingdom sets out on a journey to marry the Prince of her rival kingdom, thereby saving her people. The only problem, as she discovers, is that the Prince’s heart belongs to a Mermaid who has sacrificed everything so that they can be together. Shana Feste will write and direct. Tobey Maguire & Jenno Topping are producing.
