Channing Tatum Will Be Playing A Merman In The Remake Of Splash — Love It Or Hate It?

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)!

The actress gushed about Hanks, who only appears in a quick scene as Ryan's deceased husband, saying:

"He's just so dear. He so did not have to do that. At the end of his time, he says to the crew, ‘All right, gather ‘round. Listen, I know we've gotten to know each other very well over the last 10 hours together, but I just want to thank you for being here for my friend Meg.'"

Tom Hanks sure knows what to do in a crisis!

The actor played the captain of a boat taken captive by Somali Pirates in 2013's Captain Phillips — and now, he's is dealing with problems in the sky in the new trailer for Sully!

Based on the true story, Hanks plays American hero Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger — who performed a miracle landing on the Hudson River in 2009 after the plane struck a flock of geese.

Though the pilot was considered a "hero" in the eyes of the public, the trailer reveals how an unfolding investigation threatened to destroy his career after he saved 155 lives.

Tom didn't win an Oscar for playing the captain of a boat, but will playing the captain of a plane fare better for the Hollywood legend?

Ch-ch-check out the trailer for Sully (above) — and see more films that are already getting Oscar buzz (below)!

Tom Hanks Says He Got Type 2 Diabetes Because He Was A 'Total Idiot!'

| Filed under: Tom HanksDietsFoodHealthSick

Tom is dishing about his disease!

Tom Hanks is only blaming himself for his diabetes diagnosis.

The acclaimed actor first revealed he has Type 2 diabetes in 2013, and now he's speaking out a little bit more about how he ended up with the disease in the first place.

Video: Watch Tom In The First Trailer For Inferno!

In a recent interview with the Radio Times, the 59-year-old admitted that becoming diabetic was nobody's fault but his own, saying:

"I'm part of the lazy American generation that has blindly kept dancing through the party and now finds ourselves with a malady. I was heavy. You've seen me in movies. You know what I looked like. I was a total idiot."

The A-lister confessed that his poor diet is what put him in this position, and he wasn't very cautious in his attempts to avoid the diagnosis:

"I thought I could avoid it by removing the buns from my cheeseburgers. Well, it takes a little bit more than that."

And while he's criticizing his past actions, the movie star is much more optimistic when it comes to his future, adding:
