Channing Tatum Might Do a Ghost Remake — With Changes

Jan 31, 2023

Channing Tatum’s Free Association production company has the rights to Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore’s 1990 Oscar-winning film Ghost. But if Tatum remakes the classic romance fantasy, he wants to do it differently.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Tatum revealed his ideas for the movie.
“Now I know why they put this in Ghost,” Tatum told VF‘s Jessica Pressler during a pottery class they took together. “This whole process is very, very sexual.”
“We have the rights to Ghost,” he added. “But we’re going to do something different.”
Tatum explained that he would potentially play Swayze’s character in the Ghost remake. But he would want to modernize certain aspects of the film, because the original Ghost used what Vanity Fair described as “problematic stereotypes.”
Though Tatum didn’t specify what those stereotypes were, the original movie included a scene where Goldberg’s character’s credibility is called into question when police dig up her criminal record.
“I think it needs to change a little bit,” Tatum said.

The original Ghost follows banker Sam Wheat (Swayze) and artist Molly Jensen (Demi Moore) who are totally in love — but when Sam is murdered by his business partner Carl (Tony Goldwyn) he is doomed to walk the earth as a spirit with leftover baggage. When Sam figures out who was behind his murder, he seeks out psychic Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg) to save Molly from Carl.
Tatum has starred in blockbuster films like the Magic Mike franchise, the third movie of which — Magic Mike’s Last Dance — comes out on Feb. 10. Before that, he was in Bullet Train, The Lost City, and Free Guy just in the past two years — and Tatum also starred in and co-directed DOG in 2022, a heartwarming story about a soldier who bonds with a difficult military dog in danger of being euthanized. He co-directed DOG with Reid Carolin.
Tatum will also star in the upcoming spy thriller Red Shirt for Amazon, for which he negotiated a reported $25 million deal, Vanity Fair notes.
Long may Tatum grace our screens.
