Taraji P. Henson To Star In What Women Want Remake
The tables have turned and a woman runs sh!t now.
According to Deadline, Taraji P. Henson will star in a remake of the 2000 Mel Gibson flick What Women Want, that will now be titled What Men Want.
Fine azz Taraji will play a sports agent who, like Gibson’s film, gains the ability to read men’s minds and find out what they REALLY want. As a woman, her character is constantly dismissed and undermined, but with her new powers, she knows exactly what they are thinking is able to surpass her male counterparts to sign big name athletes.
Hilarity ensues yadda, yadda, yadda. We’re always down for anything Taraji does so we expect great things from this one.
The film will be produced by Will Packer and James Lopez with Henson getting and E.P. credit.
Hit theaters in 2019.
