Even if you didn't you could probably have guessed it, as the Disney machine is pumping out remakes like there is no tomorrow.
In a twist, Channing Tatum will be playing the mermaid (or merman) in the film and Jillian Bell will I assume be taking a Tom Hanks-ish role.
EXCLUSIVE: Disney is moving full speed ahead with a re-imagining of Splash, the 1984 sleeper hit film that launched the stars of Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah, along with Imagine partners Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, the latter of whom hatched the idea for the fish wish-fulfillment story that Howard directed. They’ve got an intriguing take: It’s being developed for Channing Tatum to take role that Hannah played, with Jillian Bell in the role that Hanks played. I’m told the pitch was hatched by Bell, who worked with Tatum in 22 Jump Street, most recently wrapped Office Christmas Party and next stars in Rock That Body.
