Oh I hope this comes to be! I think Melissa would be fabulous as Ursula the Sea Witch! Thank you to EW.com for this news!

Melissa McCarthy is heading under the sea.

The Can You Ever Forgive Me? Oscar nominee is in early talks to play Ursula in Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, EW has confirmed.

Though the studio hasn’t officially made an announcement, Rob Marshall confirmed to EW last year that he was diving into directing the project immediately after Mary Poppins Returns, which hit theaters last December. “It’s about a woman finding her voice,” Marshall told EW. “A girl finding her voice, actually. And that immediately just felt like an interesting, timely piece that resonated with us.”

The Little Mermaid‘s original composer, Alan Menken, is writing new music for the live-action version. Lin-Manuel Miranda, who worked with Marshall on Poppins, has also been tapped to work on lyrics for new music for the film with Menken.

In addition to his musical duties, Miranda will also produce alongside La La Land producer Marc Platt.

The 1989 animated film, which was directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, tells the beloved tale of Ariel (voiced by Jodi Benson), a young mermaid who falls in love with a prince and longs to be human. The nefarious sea witch Ursula agrees to make Ariel’s dreams come true in exchange for her beautiful voice.

McCarthy will next be seen alongside Elisabeth Moss and Tiffany Haddish in The Kitchen in August.

How exciting! Melissa and her good friend Octavia in the same film! FABULOUS! Thank you Deadline for the news!

EXCLUSIVE: As we watch superhero movies dominate Deadline’s Most Profitable Pic tournament, it was just a matter of time before Netflix got in that game. Sure enough, sources say they are wrapping up deals with Octavia Spencer and Melissa McCarthy to star this fall in Thunder Force, a film that Ben Falcone has written and will direct. They are keeping the specifics under wraps, but I’m told the story will center on the two stars getting superpowers.

The film will be produced by Marc Platt, Falcone and McCarthy. Spencer is coming off exec producing Best Picture winner Green Book, and she most recently was Oscar nominated for The Shape of Water and Hidden Figures after winning for The Help. McCarthy is coming off an Oscar nomination for Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Spencer is repped by WME and Jackoway Austen Tyerman; McCarthy and Falcone are repped by CAA and MGMT.
