    Splash (1984) reboot starring merman...Channing Tatum

    http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-36951279

    Magic Mike star Channing Tatum is to play the mermaid in a remake of 1984's film Splash, taking the role played by Darryl Hannah, according to reports.

    The original film saw Tom Hanks play a man saved from drowning as a boy by a mermaid, who he meets 20 years later.

    Tatum - who will presumably be a merman - is set to co-star with Jillian Bell, according to Hollywood Reporter.

    Apparently remakes have to be re-imaginings now with the main characters as opposite the original as possible. Too bad Hollywood is so afraid of new IP. I understand that it's less of a sure bet, but without it we are stuck with remakes, sequels, and bad book adaptations forever.

    Next we should see:
    Will Smith as the Mannequin in Mannequin 2016 (opposite Melissa McCarthy).
    The Godfather with all the Corleones played by Kardashians
    Predator with an all-female cast of Marines (Katherine Heigl as Dutch of course).
    Pulp Fiction with Carrot Top as Jules, and Terry Crews and Vincent.
    The Goonies (oddly enough still starring Sean Astin) with Rosie O'Donnell as Sloth.

    Had to update it, I meant Rosie to be Sloth. Clearly chunk would be played by Jonah Hill.

    It's stunning how un-creative Hollywood can be at times. Most of the time?

    Add one more (non-facetious) one to the list, new Ocean's movie with female cast.

    Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina (what the hell is an Awkwafina?).

    That's the noise you make when you choke on the news about stupid remakes while drinking Aquafina water.

    In saw that ..... I guess Ghost Busters wasn't enough of a flop

    lets remake EVERY Movie changing the genders
    - Gladiator anyone ?
    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.
