FILMMAKER Rob Marshall, who is currently basking in the success of his latest directorial, The Little Mermaid, has revealed his desire to work with Indian artists. The filmmaker also reflected about how he always looks for who is best for the role when it comes to casting in his films.
“I would love it…I mean I am so open to working with wonderful, spectacular actors…there are so many great Indian actors. I was very proud to have Art Malik in our film. He has an Asian background and he is very special. I am always looking for who is best for the role. I am open to everybody and anybody,” Rob Marshall said in an interview with ANI.
Starring Halle Bailey in the titular role, Disney’s live-action remake of the beloved animated The Little Mermaid released on May 26, 2023. The film also stars Melissa McCarthy as the evil sea witch Ursula, Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric, Javier Bardem as King Triton, Daveed Diggs as the voice of Sebastian the crab, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder the fish and Awkwafina as Scuttle the seabird.
The Little Mermaid is the live-action remake of the 1989-film by the same name. Speaking about the pressure that came with remaking a classic, Rob Marshall said that he shares a great relationship with Disney and thus did not feel any pressure. “I feel very supported by them and respected. This property means so much to the company and to the world… so I wanted to honour the greatness of what’s there but also realise that I am working on a different genre — a live-action genre…so there’s an opportunity to make it a deeper and fuller experience and more fleshed out in many ways and ultimately more emotional.”
According to initial reports, The Little Mermaid set the box-office ringing upon its release and minted over $100 million on its opening weekend worldwide.
