Disney’s remakes of their classic animated movies continue to wash ashore, and Lindsay Lohan isn’t giving up her dream of playing Ariel in The Little Mermaid.
The fiery redheaded actress told Variety she’s long coveted the role and considers The Little Mermaid her favorite film. Few details have bubbled up about the live-action rendering of Atlantica, but reports indicate that Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda will contribute original music.
Is Lindsay Lohan the perfect actress to play Disney’s beloved mermaid?

“I’m going to harass my agent about it after this,” joked Lindsay, who sounds determined to win over rumored director Rob Marshall. Despite being in development for over two years, Marshall recently told SyFy Wire that it’s too early for casting decisions to be announced.
Fans of Lohan’s classic roles in movies like The Parent Trap are pulling for her.

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve seen it… but I don’t remember lines of cocaine getting snorted in the little mermaid. I hope @lindsaylohan doesn’t want to make too many changes to the script 🤣 https://t.co/auGnpKgBOk

Others are enthused about Lohan starring alongside Meryl Streep, who’s rumored to play Ursula.
Lindsay Lohan's dream role?
“#TheLittleMermaid is my favorite movie since I was a kid."
She tells me she wants to play Ariel & wants Meryl Streep to play Ursula.

Some pointed out there actually is a sequel to Mean Girls, though it was poorly received.
Lindsay Lohan pretending a Mean Girls sequel doesn't already exist (just like the rest of us do) is my favorite running bit. pic.twitter.com/Qx3maVZSrR

I like how Mean Girls 2 is the sequel but no one liked it so we just forgot about it

Despite her turbulent past, fans still love Lindsay Lohan.
Give Lindsay a chance and don't rush her and give Lindsay her space #ETnow

Lindsey Lohan says she'd be up for starring in a Mean Girls sequel – with the orginal cast.

It would be pretty sweet to see Lindsay Lohan play a mermaid princess and swim around the underwater kingdom of Atlantica. Though some trolls are calling her acting career dead in the water, we’re rooting for Lindsay as she fights against the current for the role of her dreams.
