According to, Disney is working to re-imagine the 80s film Splash, which starred Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah. If you’re not familiar with the film, it features Tom Hanks as a regular guy who comes across a mermaid played by Daryl Hannah. This “re-imagining” includes a major change: making the mermaid a merman. Yep, Channing Tatum will be playing Daryl Hannah’s part.
