Channing Tatum Starring in Remake of 1990’s Ghost?
Published 2 weeks ago
Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore had cemented pottery as a sexual activity with their 1990 movie Ghost, and while the movie seems to be safe from any kind of sequel, it looks like a reboot could be in the works with none other than Channing Tatum.
Talking to Vanity Fair, Tatum confirmed that his production company Free Association owns the film rights to Ghost, and they could be pushing forward with a remake someday. He says, “We actually have the rights… Yeah, we have the rights to Ghost, but we’re going to do something different. I think it needs to change a little bit.”
We don’t know what possible changes Tatum could make to the story besides having it take place in the modern day, but I think he can bank in on his brand to deliver 2020s version of ‘sexy pottery with Unchained Melody playing in the background.’
Personally, I think the original movie holds up pretty well. It’s actually able to juggle several genres at cone. Though there is a drama and supernatural element to the film, we also have some great comedy from Swayze and Goldberg’s scenes. The movie can also get kind of horror in some parts.
Here’s the trailer for the original Ghost:
The synopsis reads:
‘After a young man (Swayze) is murdered, his spirit stays behind to warn his lover (Moore) of impending danger, with the help of a reluctant psychic (Whoopi Goldberg).’
We don’t know if Tatum is making his Ghost remake soon, but I’m sure a new audience is ready for a retelling of the story.
