Bad news for all you Hazza fans out there.

Harry Styles has at last acknowledged he was (note, was; past tense) in talks to play Price Eric in an upcoming remake of The Little Mermaid.

Whatever went down, were sure its for the best, Harry!

Speaking about the feverishly-anticipated Disney movie in a cover interview with The Face, Harry admitted: It was discussed.

However he then swiftly changes the subject, according to the interviewer.

I want to put music out and focus on that for a while, Harry then added.

But every­one involved in it was amaz­ing, so I think its going to be great. Ill enjoy watching it, Im sure.

Sources close to the film previously claimed Harry had turned the role down.

The character of Ariel in Little Mermaid will be played by Halle Bailey.



Former One Direction member Harrys first film role was in 2017 war epic Dunkirk.

Harry was also previously rumoured to be playing music icon Elvis in an upcoming biopic – but then, in July, it was announced that Austin Butler had landed the role.

Speaking about losing out, Harry told the magazine: I feel like if Im not the right per­son for the thing, then its best for both of us that I dont do it, you know?

Good attitude HS, and better luck next time. And by the way, Prince Charming is currently in production!
