Taraji P. Henson Will Star in ‘What Men Want’, Remake of ‘What Women Want’
In the time of reboots and remakes of famous films, many have tried to bring us back films in many different ways, some successful (like It) and others not so (like Terminator Genesis). But this one, we think will actually make a lot of people happy.
According to Deadline, Paramount is preparing a remake of the hit comedy What Women Want, but this time starred by Taraji P. Henson (Empire, Hidden Figures) and titled What Men Want.
But that’s not where the difference ends, as Taraji’s version will be the story of a female sports agent who has been constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. But after she gains the power to hear men’s thoughts, she has the ability to shift the paradigm to her advantage as she races to sign the NBA’s next superstar.
So far there’s no director or writers attached to this project, but is known that the film will be produced by Will Packer, James Lopez, Taraji P. Henson and distributed by Paramount.
