Channing Tatum and Jillian Bell will star in the “Splash” remake for Disney and Channing Tatum will play the mermaid!
According to Variety, the original movie centers around a young man played by Tom Hanks, who reunites with the mermaid (Daryl Hannah) who saved his life when he was a kid. He falls in love with her before knowing she is a mermaid. In the remake, Tatum will be the mermaid who saves a young girl and then they are reunited later and fall in love.
So if you were wondering just how magical Channing Tatum is, here’s your answer, he’s pretty damn magical. Clearly, we can see where they were going with this idea to remake a love story with a mermaid and use Tatum as a mermaid. Channing Tatum-shirtless.
The original creators, Brian Grazer and Ron Howard will return to produce the remake.
