It appears that Lindsay Lohan would like to go “Under The Sea”.
The 30-year-old Hollywood star took to her Instagram account to express her interest in playing Ariel in Disney’s live-action remake of “The Little Mermaid”.
The actress initially wrote, “I will sing again, as #ariel #thelittlemermaid (sic)”, requesting for Disney to allow her sister, Ali, to sing theme tune and to select Award-winning filmmaker Bill Condon to direct this live-adaptation. Lohan has since edited her caption to simply read, “#thelittlemermaid”.
Disney has neither commented on “The Little Mermaid” nor responded to Lohan’s post, but we do know that “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and Oscar-winning songwriter Alan Menken are onboard to write new music for Disney’s upcoming remake.
“I literally don’t have a title for what my job on ‘The Little Mermaid’ is yet. Right now, it’s the guy who wears the ‘don’t mess it up’ hat. If I could sign a contract with that job title on it, that would be great! But that’s sort of where we are,” Lin-Manuel previously said.
It’s probably a slim chance that Disney will consider Lohan for the role, but which actress do you think will be suitable for the role of Ariel?
