Demi Moore reveals her thoughts on Channing Tatum's potential “Ghost” remake

Moore tells EW that Tatum hasn't reached out to her about the remake, but isn't closing the door on the thought: "I'd be curious to see what he decides to do."

Channing Tatum isn't in danger with Demi Moore when it comes to the potential Ghost remake.

After the Magic Mike actor revealed in 2023 that he planned to remake the 1990 Oscar-winning classic that starred Moore, Patrick Swayze, and Whoopi Goldberg, the actress tells Entertainment Weekly she's intrigued by the prospect.

"Look, every story in some ways has already been told. The wonderful thing is the different way things can be reinterpreted," Moore tells EW during an interview for her Cannes breakout The Substance, which earned a lengthy standing ovation and glowing critical reviews at the Oscar-positioning film festival. "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."

When asked if Tatum has reached out to her since announcing that his production company, Free Association, acquired the rights to remake the movie, Moore says, "No, he hasn't," but she still has faith in his vision.

"He’s super talented," she later observes. "I’d be curious to see what he decides to do."

A representative for Tatum did not immediately respond to EW's request for comment.

Tatum previously told Vanity Fair that he wanted to take on the role originated by Swayze in the Jerry Zucker-directed hit, 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 told the publication, saying that he felt the original film included problematic stereotypes. "I think it needs to change a little bit."

Ghost became a runaway success following its theatrical debut, grossing $506 million at the global box office and winning two Oscars at the 1991 Academy Awards — one for Best Original Screenplay, and the other for Goldberg's supporting performance.

Since, Goldberg regularly references the project from her post as moderator on The View, including in December 2023, when she and cohost Sara Haines recreated the iconic pottery-making scene from Ghost (complete with The Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody" playing overhead), one month after Goldberg used her character's legendary "you in danger, girl" quote to criticize American politicians.

Moore also said on The Drew Barrymore Show in February that she still has the clay figures she and Swayze, who died in 2009, made during the first pottery sequence.

“I still have my little pots that I made, which are pitiful," Moore told Barrymore. "They’re like the saddest looking things."
