Just when you thought Hollywood had no freshwater ideas left!

There have been quite a few movies about mermaids over the years, but Disney's re-imagining the 1984 hit of Splash already has us foaming at the mouth — because it will star Channing Tatum as a MERMAN!

According to Deadline, the remake will be a gender swapped take on the original romance film — which launched the careers of Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah — about a man who falls in love with a mermaid who saved his life as a young boy.

The idea was pitched by Workaholics star Jillian Bell, who will be playing Hanks' role in the human-mermaid love equation. That means in this version, the Magic Mike star will fulfill our fantasies by playing the mermaid (ahem, we mean mer-MAN)!

We have a feeling this version will have a lot more comedy in it, but even so — Tatum washing up on shore as a mythical sea creature might not make a splash with modern day audiences.

Do YOU think this intriguing re-imagining of Splash is a refreshing take on an old classic, or will this sink to the abyss of the box office? Cast your votes (below)!
