The actress who originally starred as Laney Boggs in the 1999 Movie, “She’s All That” has signed on to Miramax’s gender-swapped remake called “He’s All That”.

She’ll play the mother of a popular girl who accepts a challenge to turn the school’s least popular boy into prom king after a fallout with her boyfriend. Cook’s character will NOT be the same as the one she played in the 1999 original.  So, it’s just some fun casting, NOT a plot connection to the original.

The original also starred Freddie Prinze Jr., but there’s no indication that he’s involved.  The original producers and screenwriter are onboard though.
