Chloë Grace Moretz has been cast to join the live adaptation of the Disney classic The Little Mermaid. The young actress took to her Instagram to share the exciting news over the weekend.

"Here it is!! I've been waiting months to tell everyone how excited I am to take on this beautiful journey with Working Title, Universal, and a beautiful script by Richard Curtis.. #TheLittleMermaid !!!!! Here we go!!!" she wrote.

We'll have you know that Richard Curtis also wrote scripts for films such as About Time, War Horse and Bridget Jones's Diary. As of now, details of the film remain under wraps as it has not yet found its director. We have big expectations for this one!
