ETonline EXCLUSIVE: Channing Tatum Says He'll Do 'Everything' He Can to Get Tom Hanks in
Now that Disney has greenlit a Splash remake starring Channing Tatum and Jillian Bell, the Magic Mike XXL star says he's going to do whatever it takes to get Tom Hanks to come back for the upcoming reboot.
"I will be washing Tom's car [and] doing everything that I can to get him in that movie!" Tatum told ET's Angelique Jackson at the Fulfillment Fund gala at Universal Studios in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
In the gender-swapped reimagining of Hanks' 1984 romantic comedy classic, Tatum is set to star as the mermaid love interest originally played by Daryl Hannah, while Bell will star in the role Hanks originated.
Tatum admitted that he and Bell have thus far been "too afraid" to talk with Hanks about the remake, because for years their idea for the film was just a joke that they threw out to Disney as a "shot in the dark."
