Channing Tatum to Play Mermaid in ‘Mermaid’ Remake, Fans Unimpressed

Channing Tatum is going under the sea! He’s set to star in a remake of “Splash,” the 1984 rom-com about a man who falls in love with a mermaid.

But there’s a switch: Tatum will play the Daryl Hannah role of the mermaid, or merman… While actress Jillian Bell takes the Tom Hanks role of the love-struck human.

Is your mind blown yet? This seems to be the trend to remake movies with a gender switch.

After the news hit, people had plenty to say and it seems lots of people hate the idea.
