In recent times, it’s become something of a trend: take classic fairy tales and/or children’s stories and remake them into a more adult-targeted tale (with many having a darker feel to them). We’ve seen such characters as Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood receiving the treatment. Also in works are a darker retelling based on the Peter Pan character. Well, now we can add another to that growing list. The Little Mermaid will be getting a new movie that is a re-imagining of the classic tale.
