Pop music star and occasional actor Harry Styles reportedly won't be playing the role of Prince Eric in the live-action remake of Disney's The Little Mermaid.  

Styles had been in talks to play the part for about a month, but The Hollywood Reporter said Tuesday it confirmed he is no longer in negotiations with Disney.


"While he is a fan of the project, he has respectfully declined the offer," a source told People.com.

Halle Bailey is set to play the titular heroine in the movie musical, which re-imagines the 1989 cartoon classic. Jacob Tremblay and Awkwafina will co-star.

 ABC is also planning a separate live-action TV event of The Little Mermaid featuring Auli'i Cravalho, Queen Latifah and Shaggy.  Styles played a supporting role in the 2017 World War II picture Dunkirk.a"While he is a fan of the project, he has respectfully declined the offer," a source told People.com.
