Why does this actor with the depth of a child’s wave pool keep getting so much work?  A better question is how much more pillaging of good ideas and re-inventions needs to occur before the collective public declares “no mas”:( REC

Channing Tatum is the Merman of Your Dreams in ‘Splash’ Remake

The movie that made household names of Academy Awarding winning actor Tom Hanks and co-star Daryl Hannah is next on the remake express. 1984 comedy “Splash,” about a man who falls in love with a mermaid, is getting a 21st century makeover that features a major role reversal. This time around, it’s a woman that falls in love with a merman.

“22 Jump Street” co-stars Channing Tatum and Jillian Bell will headline the remake, according to Deadline, with Bell falling in love with an undersea dwelling Tatum. Marja-Lewis Ryan, who recently wrote and directed “Liked,” described as Cyrano de Bergerac for the social media age, has been tapped to write the screenplay for the re-imaging.

The “Splash” remake, which was previously referred to as “Wet,” will be produced by Ron Howard and original director Brian Grazer, both of whom produced the 1984 version about a boy who was saved from drowning by a mermaid. Twenty years later, the mermaid returns to the boy, now a man, and the pair fall in love. Along with Hanks and Hannah, the original film also starred SCTV veterans John Candy and Eugene Levy.
