Paramount Pictures has premiered the first trailer for “What Men Want,” the upcoming gender-swapped remake of the Nancy Meyers comedy “What Women Want”.
Adam Shankman (“Hairspray”) helms the film in which “Empire” alum Taraji P. Henson plays a successful sports agent who is constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. One day, she suddenly gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts and uses that power to outsmart her colleagues and try to sign the next basketball superstar.
Her actions soon put her relationships with her best friends and a potential new love interest (Aldis Hodge) to the test. Tracy Morgan, Richard Roundtree, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Josh Brener, Tamala Jones, Phoebe Robinson, Max Greenfield, Jason Jones, Brian Bosworth, Chris Witaske and Erykah Badu also star in the film which opens January 11th.
