"It was very sweet of her (to mention me). I hope she gets to make that movie," Condon told Vulture magazine.

"I feel like I was so lucky in getting this crown jewel ('Beauty and the Beast'), but I'll see her in 'The Little Mermaid', absolutely," he added.

Lohan had posted a side-by-side image of herself and character of Princess Ariel from The Little Mermaid classic animated version on her Instagram account on 19 February  2016.

"I will sing again, as Ariel, 'The Little Mermaid', (if) Disney approves that Bill Condon directs it," she captioned the image.
