"Heeeeeaaaarrrrmmmfmmffkfjfhasi!" That's mermaid for "OMG YES"

Channing Tatum is playing a sexy mermaid in a movie headed to a big screen near you. 

This is not a drill. 

I know, I'm in a state hot, sweaty, sexy, shock, too

When I first read the news that they were remaking the 1984 hit 'Splash' starring Darryl Hannah and Tom Hanks I was all "lol."

But then I kept reading and made an amazing discovery.

In this reboot of the classic, Channing Tatum will be playing the Darryl Hannah role. You know, AN ACTUAL SEXY MERMAID

That's right, we get to watch Channing Tatum and his abs undulate underwater for prolonged amounts of time. 

Take a minute if you need to recover from a swoon, it took me easily twenty minutes. 

Not since Zoolander has the merman garnered such attention.

It's like someone found my dream journal and decided to option it, Hollywood style. 

I thought that the potential flick couldn't get any better until I saw that in the Tom Hanks role was Workaholics star Jillian Bell.

You guys. Not only is Jillian Bell maybe one of the funniest comedic actresses on the planet, but this means she is going to french Tatum on celluloid.

Do you know what this means?

WE ARE ALL ONE STEP CLOSER TO MAKING OUT WITH CHANNING TATUM IN THE PARISIAN STYLE.

I feel like growing up every little girl went through a mermaid phase. 

Personally, mine was never about sex — I may have been naive but even I knew that the tail would prove problematic. 

My Twitter bud Victoria Carter pointed out that this casting of Tatum is probably a direct result of Chris Hemsworth's success in Ghostbusters. 

She's probably right! 

God, what a time to be a woman on earth right now. America's got it's first female presidential nominee and hot steaming mounds of beefcake are being objectified by Hollywood the way women have been for centuries. 

No word yet on a release date, but you can bet that whatever Channing Tatum mermaid related news breaks next, I will be here to cover it, possibly screaming.
