‘Ghost’ Remake By Channing Tatum Intrigues Demi Moore, But She Hasn’t Been Contacted About It

Demi Moore says she’s intrigued by Channing Tatum’s plans to remake the 1990 Oscar-winning film, Ghost.

The film grossed $506 million at the global box office and won two Oscars at the 1991 Academy Awards — one for Best Original Screenplay, and the other for Whoopi Goldberg’s supporting performance.

Moore spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the potential remake.

“Look, every story, in some ways, has already been told. The wonderful thing is the different way things can be reinterpreted,” Moore said. “I think there are some films that often are better left not touched, and left, and then sometimes there are wonderful surprises in that reinterpretation.”

Tatum has not spoken to Moore about his plans. “No, he hasn’t,” but added, “He’s super talented. I’d be curious to see what he decides to do.”

Tatum previously told Vanity Fair that he wanted to take on the role originated by Patrick Swayze in the film, which followed a murdered banker (Swayze) using a New York City medium (Goldberg) to warn his girlfriend (Moore) of a looming threat to her life.

“But we’re going to do something different,” he said. “I think it needs to change a little bit.”
