Last night the news broke that Harry Styles might be playing the role of Prince Eric in the Little Mermaid remake.
However, it's bad news for a Wednesday as it's now come out that Styles has "respectfully declined" the role of Prince Eric in Disney's live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.

These claims appear to be false, as a source told The Wrap that while he was a "fan" of the project, he would not be taking on the role.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Harry had been having discussions about him voicing the prince who falls in love with Ariel – a mermaid with a fascination with the human world.
Eric doesn’t have any singing moments in the original The Little Mermaid movie, but given Harry’s singing background the remake could have utilised his vocal talents.
Singer Halle Bailey was recently cast as Ariel in the highly-anticipated movie, after the 19-year-old rose to fame through Chloe x Halle, the musical partnership with her sister Chloe.
Melissa McCarthy will reportedly take the role of Ursula, the villainous sea witch.
Either way we can't wait to see the film.
