Now we’re the poor, unfortunate souls who have to wait for official teasers. 

All of your childhood fantasies about a gender-swapped Little Mermaid are about to come true. Kind of.

According to The HollywoodReporter, Channing Tatum will play a merman in the Disney remake of 1984's Splash. Daryl Hannah starred in the original film as a mermaid who saved a boy from drowning and, 20 years later, returns to offer the boy, now Tom Hanks, a chance to return to the sea with her.

In the remake our protagonists will gender-swap, with Tatum playing the life-saving merman and Jillian Bell will play the land-dweller.

Ok, now give us the first teaser pics of Tatum with his fin, salt-sprayed hair, and reasonable amounts of shimmer effects.
