Channing Tatum to play a merman.
Channing Tatum is trading his signature six pack for scales! Although given that he's playing a merman, and they're generally shirtless under da sea, they'll probably be on display too. (Not the worst news we've heard this week).
Tatum is reportedly in talks to star in a reboot of the 80's classic Splash, which starred Daryl Hannah as the mermaid Tom Hanks falls for. This time round, however, it's Channing who'll be the merperson, and Jillian Bell the landlubber who loves him.
