Working Title Films and director Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice, Atonement) are developing a live-action feature based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale "The Little Mermaid."

Abi Morgan (Brick Lane) wrote the script for the adaptation of the classic tale of a young mermaid who gives up her life in the sea for a human prince.

Andersen's story was first published in 1837 and has been adapted numerous times for stage and screen. Wright's version is inspired by a children's puppet theatre production of the classic at London's Little Angel Theatre Company.

Wright's new action thriller Hanna is scheduled for an April 8, 2011 release.
