It's official—Chloë Grace Moretz will star as Ariel in Universal's live-action reboot of The Little Mermaid film.

"Here it is!! I've been waiting months to tell everyone how excited I am to take on this beautiful journey with Working Title, Universal, and a beautiful script by Richard Curtis.. #TheLittleMermaid!!!! Here we go!!!" the 18-year-old actress posted on Instagram.

Despite confirmation of its lead lady, the film still remains without a director after Sofia Coppola exited the project citing creative differences with the studio earlier this year.

Richard Curtis (who penned scripts for Love Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral) is in talks to write the movie's script, which will retell the Hans Christian Andersen classic about a mermaid who gives up her life in the sea after falling in love with a handsome prince.
