Lindsay Lohan might not have acted in a major theatrical role since 2013's Scary Movie 5, but she's got a little idea brewing. She wants to play Ariel in a live-action remake of Disney's animated classic, A Little Mermaid, because, duh, have you seen her hair?

And sure, Lindsay Lohan hasn't put out an album (her first and last) since 2004, but come on, have you even seen her hair?? It's red! Like Ariel's! On Sunday morning, Lohan took to Instagram to post a side-by-side photo of her and the Disney princess. Originally, the caption outlined her plan for bringing her idea to fruition, but now the scheme has been replaced with a simple and uncontroversial "#thelittlemermaid." According to EW, the original caption read, "I will sing again, as #ariel #thelittlemermaid [if] @Disney approve that #billcondon directs it," referring to the director who helped bring musical films like Chicago and Dream Girls to life.

It's entertaining that the only contingency Lohan mentions is whether or not Bill Condon will agree to direct the film, not whether she will get cast or if the movie will even be made by Disney, but you have to respect her confidence. Would Lohan make a great Ariel? Who's to say. But let us not forget the fact that Lohan has played opposite herself not once, but twice, in The Parent Trap and again in I Know Who Killed Me. Plus, her hair.
