Channign Tatum to play mermaid in “Splash” remake for Disney

Disney is set to remake the 1984 film Splash with an unpredictable twist: Channing Tatum will star as the mermaid character, originally played by Daryl Hannah, while Jillian Bell will play the character originally played by Tom Hanks.


Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, from Imagine Entertainment, will produce along with Tatum, Reid Carolin and Peter Kieran through their Free Association banner. Anna Culp will be the executive producer, while Marja Lewis Ryan will write the script.


In the 1984 movie, Hanks plays a young boy was saved from drowning by a mermaid (Hannah). After 20 years, the mermaid finds the boy again, giving him the option between his life on land or a life under the sea with her.


Tatum and Bell previously worked together on 22 Jump Street. Tatum, recently seen in Hail, Caesar!, next will be seen in Kingsman: The Golden Circle. 











Bell will soon be seen in Office Christmas Party and Fist Fight.
