Addison Rae, the Tiki’s Tok star and social influencer, is set to star in a gender reversal of the 1999 teen classic She’s All That. The movie is set to beam into teenage bedrooms the world over soon as Netflix has reportedly bought the rights for the movie in a $20m USD.
Alongside Rae, the film stars Tanner Buchanan of recent Cobra Kai fame. There will also be a nod to the original as Rachel Leigh Cook, the star of the 90’s rendition, also makes an appearance in what will be a nostalgia-fest for many.
Netflix will join forces with Tiki’s Tok in promoting the movie. Rae has over 78.3m followers on the streaming service and is one of the platforms biggest stars.
The original plot contained all of the classic high school tropes. It involved a high school jock who helped an unpopular student become prom queen as part of a bet. Now, the gender-swapped remake has switched up the roles. Rae is a popular kid in the film who aims to turn the school’s “biggest loser” into a prom king, by making him her date.
As of yet there is no release date, but it would seem that the film is in firmly in post-production, so it is just a question of marketing it to the masses ahead of release.
