Pierce Brosnan made a mermaid movie but nobody is allowed to see it!!!

i was casually browsing pierce brosnan’s wikipedia page tonight when i noticed something v exciting: he recently filmed a MERMAID FANTASY MOVIE where he plays KING LOUIS XIV. how had i not heard about this?

this is clearly the best film ever made:

“King Louis XIV’s quest for immortality leads him to capture and steal a mermaid’s life force, a move that is further complicated by his illegitimate daughter’s discovery of the creature.” [x]

Kaya Skodelario plays the daughter. Fan Bingbing plays the mermaid. there are also a bunch of men but i don’t care about them.

naturally i was very excited to hear about this movie, for the obvious reason that it stars A MERMAID alongside PIERCE BROSNAN IN A HISTORICAL WIG. but then i noticed something ominous: it’s been delayed. “indefinitely” delayed. since April 2015.

usually when a film gets delayed for that long, it means one of two things: it’s an unwatchably terrible box office disaster in the making, or there’s some weird legal shit going on behind the scenes.

but whatever the reason, seriously: Paramount Pictures, i do not care. please deliver the goods on this PIERCE BROSNAN MERMAID MOVIE. it’s a cultural necessity.

xoxo, Gavia.

“We are social animals. We like to feel a part of something of beauty and power that transcends our insignificance. It can be a religion, a political party, a ball club. Why not also Nature? I feel a strong identity with the world of living things. I was born into it; we all were. But we may not feel the ties unless we gain intimacy by seeing, feeling, smelling, touching and studying the natural world.” ― Bernd Heinrich, One Man’s Owl
