Colin Farrell will be sporting the long locks and puppy-dog eyes shown in this exclusive photo in his upcoming movie Ondine(premieres on VOD, Amazon, and XBOX Live May 7 and in theaters June 4), where he plays an Irish fisherman who accidentally nets a woman he believes might be a mermaid. Although, I’m sure in real life the roguish (and brogue-ish) actor doesn’t need to go trawling the ocean for women. Director Neil Jordan’s other take on fairy tales, The Company of Wolves, turned Little Red Riding Hood into a creepy and bloody meditation on sexual politics, so I think we can expect something a tad different from The Little Mermaid or (PLEASE LORD NO!) Lady in the Water. See more exclusive pics after the jump.
