Rachael Leigh Cook, known for her role in teen fave “She’s All That”, is jumping aboard Miramax’s gender-flipped remake “He’s All That”.
The film has Addison Rae (of Tik-Tok fame) and Tanner Buchanan aboard, alongside Madison Pettis, Petyon Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, Annie Jacob and Myra Molloy.
Rae, in a role inspired by Freddie Prinze Jr’s Zackary Siler, plays Padgett Sawyer, who accepts a challenge to turn the school’s least popular boy (Buchanan) into prom king, attempting to avenge herself following a humiliating fallout with her boyfriend. Cook will play Padgett’s wise and caring mother.
Mark Waters is set to direct the film from a screenplay by R. Lee Fleming – who also wrote the original.
