Channing Tatum will soon be diving into the remake of Tom Hanks' classic 1984 film, Splash, but with a gender twist. This time around, instead of a mermaid, it will be a merman, so naturally, we had to get Hanks to weigh in on the update.
"Fantastic! Why not?" Hanks tells ET. "Give it a shot!"
While Tatum and Bell work on recreating the magic Hanks and Daryl Hannah had in the water for Splash, Hanks is reviving memories of the miraculous landing Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger had when he glided a disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River for Sully.
Captain Sullenberger became a hero after saving all 155 people onboard during an emergency landing on Jan. 15, 2009, but what few people know about is the investigation that followed, which threatened to destroy his reputation and career.
