The 1999 teen comedy “She’s All That” starring the dreamy Freddie Prinze-Junior is getting the gender-swap treatment, with “He’s All That” coming to Netflix this year.
The film stars TikTok sensation-turned-actress Addison Rae, “Cobra Kai’s” Tanner Buchanan and original star Rachael Leigh Cook, who is taking on a new role in this new iteration. Mark Waters directed the remake, from a script by Lee Fleming (who also penned the 1999 classic).
Addison will star as Padgett Sawyer, inspired by Freddie Prinze Jr.’s Zackary Siler role. The new spin will be told from a teenage girl’s point of view. The contemporary story follows an influencer (Rae) who accepts a challenge to turn the school’s biggest loser (Buchanan) into prom king.
Additional cast includes Madison Pettis, Peyton Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, Annie Jacob, Myra Molloy and Matthew Lillard.
“He’s All That” will hit Netflix globally later this year. News of Netflix’s involvement comes from Deadline.
