Jacob Tremblay and Awkwafina are in talks to join Disney's live-action remake of the 1989 animated classic "The Little Mermaid".
Tremblay will star as Ariel's fish buddy Flounder, with Awkwafina set to portray Scuttle the seagull. This is a project we've been hearing about for a long time but it appears that things are finally moving, somewhat rapidly, in the right direction.
Based on Disney's animated adaptation of the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, The Little Mermaid follows Ariel, a mermaid who strikes a deal with the sea witch Ursula in order to fulfil her dreams of walking on land and falling in love with a prince.
