Channing Tatum will don a tail to play a mermaid, or merman, in a gender-swapped remake of “Splash.”

The 1984 movie originally starred Tom Hanks as a young man who falls in love with a mysterious woman (Daryl Hannah) who is secretly a mermaid.

In Disney’s remake, Tatum will take on the role of the merman, while Jillian Bell will play Hanks’ character, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tatum and Bell have already shared the screen once before; they worked together on “22 Jump Street.”

It remains to be seen whether Tatum will rock the flowing blonde waves of Hannah’s mermaid in the new “Splash.”
