Universal Pictures have finally found their Little Mermaid and its none other than Chloe Moretz. The in-demand actress will be adding this live action remake to one of her many acting credits, she’s had so far. The 17-year-old will star in the adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen tale and not quite the modern day Disney tale. Director Richard Curtis is reportedly being scouted to helm the project for Universal.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan Joins The Walking Dead
Veteran actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan who starred in a number of productions such as Supernatural, Watchmen and recently Texas Rising, is set to join the cast of The Walking Dead soon. According to reports, the actor will portray a character named Negan who is a lead antagonist in the comic book series. We wonder if AMC will enforce the same tenacity and gravitas as the comic book character who was a pivotal villain in the series. Morgan is set to appear in the season six finale of the series, which will lead to the core story for season seven of The Walking Dead.
