Melissa McCarthy in talks to play Ursula in live-action 'Little Mermaid' movie?

Every princess has a villain. Sleeping Beauty needs Maleficent, Cinderella has her wicked stepmother. Maybe it’s her look, maybe it’s her song, but Ursula, the sea witch, remains a villainous favorite.

Although casting information has not been released, it is being reported that Melissa McCarthy is in talks to play that poor unfortunate soul, Ursula. The Oscar nominated McCarthy has appeared in such films as The Heat, Spy, and will soon appear in The Kitchen.

There is currently no release date for the film.
