‘Splash’ Remake Reportedly Moving Forward

Disney/Imagine/Free Association’s “Splash” remake is reportedly moving forward.

The original 1984 film, which starred Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah, was about a successful businessman who falls in love with the girl of his dreams. There’s one big complication though; he’s fallen hook, line and sinker for a mermaid.

A remake of the film was first reported in 2016 with Jillian Bell attached to star (Workaholics, 22 Jump Street) however, it was consistently delayed.

A new script will now be written by the writer of the Netflix movie Sleepover, Sarah Rothschild.  Marja-Lewis Ryan wrote an earlier draft of the” Splash” remake.

The original “Splash” movie is available to stream now on DIsney+.
