The She’s All That remake He’s All That, starring TikTok star Addison Rae and Tanner Buchanan, has a new home, along with two big stars attached to the film!

Deadline exclusively reported that Netflix has picked up the rights for the remake for reportedly north of $20 million. Additionally, original stars Rachael Leigh Cook and Matthew Lillard are set to return, with Cook taking on a new role as Rae’s character’s wise and caring mother.

Rae will star as Padgett Sawyer, a role inspired by Freddie Prinze Jr.’s Zackary Siler. The gender-swapped remake will be told from a teenage girl’s point of view and follows an influencer who accepts a challenge to turn the school’s biggest loser into prom king.

Madison Pettis, Peyton Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, Annie Jacob and Myra Molloy will also star. Netflix will release the film globally later this year.
