Tom Hanks has the hots for Channing Tatum’s merman in Splash remake (VIDEO)
Tom Hanks has said he wants to be included in the Splash remake, and that he could see his original character running off with merman Channing Tatum.
Speaking to AP at the premiere of Inferno, Hanks spoke of the gender-switched remake of the 1984 film.
In the original, Hanks starred as Allen Bauer, who protects and falls in love with mermaid Madison, played by Darryl Hannah.
In the remake, Tatum plays a merman, with Jillian Bell reprising a version of Hanks’ original role.
Speaking at the premiere, Hanks said: “No one asked me…Look, I think if they were really going to be bold, I would come back as Allen Bauer, and I would go off with Channing Tatum.
“That would be a bold movie. And I am suggesting it right now.”
