Splash is an upcoming remake of the 1984 Touchstone Pictures live-action film of the same name.


Producer Brian Grazer recently revealed in an interview with CNBC that he’s working on a remake of the 1984 romantic comedy Splash, only with a twist. The only information Grazer has stated is that he gave a vague hint in which he said "there's a movie star that's going to be involved", and stated it'll most likely be from the point-of-view of the mermaid and will be closer to an earlier draft of Splash.[1] On August 1, 2016, Deadline reports that Jillian Bell and Channing Tatum will star with Bell as the female human and Tatum as the merman. Tatum will also produced the remake through his production company Free Association with his producing partners Reid Carolin and Peter Kieran, while Howard and Grazer will also produce from their production Imagine Entertainment with their partner Anna Culp will be the executive producer and Marja-Lewis Ryan will pen the remake.[2]
