While people are still excited over her new gig, Disney fans are dying to figure out who will play Prince Eric. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter casting directors are already looking to cast former One Direction member-turned-actor Harry Styles.

The news site says that Styles is in early negotiations to play the iconic role. They also explained that,

“The casting of Styles and Bailey show the studio’s intent of making the music a central component of the remake. Interestingly, the character of Eric performed no songs in the 1989 original. However, that was remedied in the 2000s Broadway musical, with Eric now performing several, including two solos.”

Production on The Little Mermaid will reportedly begin in 2020. Socialites, do you think Harry Styles will be the perfect Prince Eric in upcoming film? Let us know in the comment box below!
