Channing Tatum is getting his ripped abs out again!

E! News is reporting that the hunky actor will join 22 Jump Street co-star Jillian Bell for a Disney remake of the 1984 film Splash, which originally featured Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah.

The original movie followed the story of a young man named Allen who reunites with a mermaid named Maison who saved him from drowning as a boy. He ends up falling in love with her but does not know who she is.

The remake will be different, with Tatum playing a male version of the mermaid and Bell will play a female version of Allen.

So looks like we’ll be seeing our first ‘mer-man‘ on the big screen since Derek Zoolander!

Though the film is in the early stages of development, it looks as if Marja-Lewis Ryan is writing the script.
