In an interview with Vanity Fair, Channing Tatum revealed that he’s planning to star in a remake of “Ghost” produced by his very own production company Free Association. Tatum said, “We actually have the rights. Yeah, we have the rights to ‘Ghost.'” But it won’t be a one-to-one remake (when is it ever?), the “Magic Mike” star also has a few changes in mind. “But we’re going to do something different,” said Tatum, in regard to problematic stereotypes in the original film. “I think it needs to change a little bit.”
It’s likely that, should Tatum’s remake of “Ghost” become more substantial, other changes would occur, as well. The original film’s finale sees the hero all but kill his own killers, who are then dragged screaming into Hell by a hoard of demons — and this is considered a happy ending. Even with limited, and admittedly silly, ’90s special effects, it’s not the kind of thing one easily forgets. Or, who knows? Tatum’s proven that he’s down for stranger things.
