It sounded so awesome; Sofia Coppola directing a live-action version of Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid. What a great combination of artist and subject; a filmmaker who loves plumbing the depths of privilege and following women as they struggle to free themselves from the prisons society puts them in, and a fairy tale that’s got all of that plus mermaids. It was perfect. But maybe it was too perfect; Deadline now reports that Coppola has dropped out of the project citing “creative differences” with producers at Universal Pictures and Working Title films.

With 'Frozen' still tearing up the box office months after release, the demand for fantastical stories revolving around princesses are at an all-time high ... and Disney isn't the only one looking for a slice of the action. Sofia Coppola of 'Lost in Translation' and 'The Bling Ring' fame is looking to bring Hans Christian Anderson's 'The Little Mermaid' to the big screen for Universal, which is as interesting a combination of talent and subject matter that we've ever seen.

Sofia Coppola ('Marie Antoinette,' 'Lost in Translation') returns with a new movie about a real-life group of privileged LA teens who invaded the homes of celebrities to steal their clothing and jewelry. Unfortunately, 'The Bling Ring' is as vacant as the homes these kids pillage.

'The Bling Ring' Review

It wasn't until around 40 minutes into 'The Bling Ring' when I realized that, in no way, was this movie supposed to be "fun" or even "enjoyable." That's when I let down my guard, one that had instinctively risen as soon as I encountered the film's despicable characters. And that's when I realized this movie was a little bit brilliant.
Unlike 'Spring Breakers,' which butters you up with ebullience before crashing your mellow with its frenzied social commentary, 'The Bling Ring' is a dark and surprisingly plain-spoken peek at vapid and defiantly unlikable people. Once you break past the wall of resistance – a reasonable response might be to just up and leave the theater after 20 minutes – something of a transformation occurs. As an anthropological work, Sofia Coppola's true-crime tale of high school bandits stealing the designer shoes and gaudy jewelry of the TMZ crowd, is actually a remarkable, albeit dark and depressing affair. It is a challenging work and a unique film.
