Universal and Imagine Making Merman


Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have acquired Merman, a romantic comedy script by Jennifer Abu Hollander, says Variety.

The film will be produced by Imagine’s Brian Grazer, his first fish foray since Splash, the breakout hit that forged his partnership with Ron Howard.

The story follows a merman who comes to land so he can win back his mermaid fiancee, who has left him for a real man. The story was hatched by the screenwriter and Jeff Moskowitz.
