Harry Styles Turns Down Prince Eric Role In 'The Little Mermaid' Remake (Report)

Harry Styles will not be playing Prince Eric in the upcoming The Little Mermaid live action remake!

While he was formally offered the part, the 25-year-old musician has reportedly turned down the role in the musical, where he would have starred opposite Halle Bailey, The Wrap reports.

Earlier in the day, new reports came out that Harry had officially signed on for the film, and the internet went crazy.

Harry would have joined other rumored cast members Javier Bardem as King Triton, Awkwafina as Scuttle, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula.

While no official word on the rest of the casting has been revealed from Walt Disney Studios, it is likely that further announcements will be made at next weekend’s D23 Expo, where director Rob Marshall is expected to dish about the new film. The annual D23 Expo will go from August 23rd until August 25th in Anaheim, Calif.
