Well, here's an interesting item. CHARLOTTE'S SONG is a dark and gritty take on "The Little Mermaid," and if you didn't think such a thing was possible, you'll want to take a look at the trailer.

Described as PAN'S LABYRINTH meets HBO's "Carnivale," the film comes from director Nicholas Humphries and stars Iwan Rheon (Ramsey Snow on "Game of Thrones" and Katelyn Mager.

"Charlotte's Song" tells the story of Charlotte, a young girl coming of age in the midst of one of the most desolate and desperate periods in American history. The untimely death of her mother triggers a downward spiral for her father, five sisters and their family-run song and dance act. Help comes from an unlikely source when a gangster named Randall offers to pay off their debt in exchange for making some unsavoury changes to the family business. Matters are complicated when it is discovered that Charlotte, like her mother before her, is in fact a mermaid capable of controlling humans with her voice. What follows is a sophisticated magical turf war in which antagonists from many camps seek to take advantage of Charlotte's power. The best and worst of humanity are put on display and Charlotte must choose her own path, knowing that the wrong decision will have deadly consequences for the people she loves.

No word on when we might get a look at the feature, but we’ll let you know once that news comes in.
