The Weinstein Company and Miramax are developing a remake of the 1999 teen movie “She’s All That,” itself an adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s classic play “Pygmalion”.
The film starred Freddie Prinze Jr. as a high school jock who makes a bet with his best friend (Paul Walker) that he can turn a shy art student (Rachael Leigh Cooke) into his high school’s prom queen. Matthew Lillard, Anna Paquin, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, Usher Raymond and Lil’Kilm also starred.
The remake will follow a similar premise and is expected to be developed with more diverse leads in mind. The original film grossed more than $100 million worldwide.
Kenny Leon will direct and Tonya Lewis Lee will produce the film.
