Channing Tatum Is Planning to Remake Ghost.


Channing Tatum has revealed that he has the rights to the classic 1990 romance Ghost from Paramount Pictures and plans to remake it.

Speaking in a new Vanity Fair profile to promote Magic Mike's Last Dance, Tatum admitted he and his creative partners have the rights to Ghost and are developing a new version.

Ghost was a tremendous success, banking $505 million to become the year's highest-grossing film. It also scored several Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. Given these accolades, it may even be surprising that the film hasn't been given the reboot treatment in the United States, though there was a Japanese remake released in 2010. But as it turns out, the gears are finally in motion on a domestic Ghost remake courtesy of Channing Tatum.

"We actually have the rights. Yeah, we have the rights to ‘Ghost!'"

He added, "But we're going to do something different. I think it needs to change a little bit, sharing how he might be starring as Swayze’s character."

Tatum insisted that, like many other movies of its day, "Ghost" contained some problematic stereotypes.
