Channing Tatum To Star In Re-boot Of Splash

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!

If you were given the power to remove words from the English language what words would you choose to remove? (self.AskReddit)

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?
