According to recent rumors, the beloved 1999 romantic comedy, She's All That, is going to get a remake. The original followed a jock named Zack (played by Freddie Prinze Jr.) who, after going through a break-up, makes a bet with his buddy Dean (played by the late and beloved Paul Walker) that he can turn any girl in the school into prom queen. He chooses Laney, a shy and unpopular art student (played by Rachel Leigh Cook).
Of course, it leads to love and an eventual falling-out when she finds out about the bet. It had an all-star cast, including Anna Paquin, Dule Hill, Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, Kieran Culkin, Matthew Lillard, Usher, and many more.
Supposedly, the remake will have a similar story. Kenny Leon is set to direct, with Tonya Lewis Lee (Spike Lee's wife) set to produce under Tonik Productions. Miramax is said to be producing it as well, but it has denied it, and The Weinstein Company is also said to be involved with the film's development, but it hasn't commented.
Either way, fans of the original aren't happy about the rumored remake. One Twitter user tweeted to Freddy Prinze Jr., "You know, Hollywood just running out of ideas one more time. But what's new?", to which Prinze responded that it's "tough for writers with original scripts." I'll have to agree with them. I'm not thrilled about this '90s classic being remade, but you know, that's what Hollywood does. We'll see where this goes, I guess. If it goes anywhere.
What do you think about the idea of this rumored remake?
