Lindsay Lohan may have thought of a good use for her red hair.
The 30 year-old actress put herself forward to Disney in hopes of starring as The Little Mermaid, Ariel. She is eyeing the role in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s live-action re-creation of the Disney classic.
Lohan was not only trying to offer herself to the company behind her breakout role in 1998’s The Parent Trap. The former child star also asked that her sister, Ali, perform the theme song and Bill Condon be director. Furthermore, She requested fitness expert, Kristen Graham to play the role of the famous foe, Ursula.
The redhead star took to Instagram and initially posted, “I will sing again, as #ariel #thelittlemermaid,” Lohan wrote on Instagram Saturday with a side-by-side photo of her and the underwater princess. “@disney approve that “#billcondon directs it along with my sister @alianamusic singing the theme song for the soundtrack.”
Her post came with a photo collage of herself with the mermaid princess. However, on Sunday, she had updated the caption to just “#thelittlemermaid.”
Miranda will collaborate with Alan Menken, who created the music for the original animated movie in 1989. Marc Platt, who is teaming up with Miranda on Mary Poppins Returns, will produce the live remake.
Chloe Grace Moretz, 20, was tapped to play the lead role but dropped out last September. Moretz’s age is a more standard age for the crimson-haired princess who departs her home to find true love.
Since calling of her engagement, Lohan has stayed out of the limelight. She split up with her Russian heir fiancé Egor Taravasov last summer. She has spent most of her time in Turkey volunteering with Syrian refugees.
In May 2016, Disney chose The Little Mermaid to be its next animation to become a live-action movie after the release of other Disney classics.
The soundtrack will feature a fusion of pre-existing songs from Disney’s animated version of the Hans Christian Andersen’s story.
