Channing Tatum to star in re-boot of Splash?
The classic 80s movie about a man who falls in love with a mermaid is being re-booted but with the roles reversed.
Channing Tatum will play a mer-man and Jillian Bell will play the girl who falls in love with him in a shake up of the roles originally played by Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah.
This follows on from the same treatment that Ghostbusters was given and that appears to have been a huge success…
Let’s hope Disney do Splash justice.
Since it seems to be the “in thing” to do – what other 80s movie would you like to see be re-booted with this male/female role reversal makeover?
Let me know in the comments below or tweet me @SteveSays2014 and let’s see what we can come up with and I will put together a summary post.
I also did an Ask Reddit to find out what others thought – could get interesting!
First Ghostbusters, now Splash. What other 80s movie would you want to see re-booted with the male/female roles reversed and with what actors?
