Netflix acquired the rights to display the reboot of Ela é Demais (1999), a classic from the 1990s that will win a new version by Miramax. Starring Tanner Buchanan (Cobra Kai’s Robby) and TikTok star Addison Rae, the film will reverse the roles of the original and show a popular girl trying to turn an excluded boy into the king of the high school dance.
Titled He’s All That, the feature features Padgett Sawyer (Addison), a character inspired by Zack Siler, protagonist of the original film played by Freddie Prinze Jr.
Padgett takes on the challenge of turning Cameron Kweller (Buchanan), the less popular boy at school, into prom king, as revenge after suffering a humiliating breakup with his ex-boyfriend. Rachel Leigh Cook, who played the nerdy girl Laney Boggs in She’s Awesome, will act in the reboot as the mother of Addison’s character.
In addition to the protagonist couple, the teen group still has Madison Pettis (The Fosters), Peyton Meyer (Girl Meets World), Isabella Crovetti (Colony), Annie Jacob (Motherland) e Myra Molloy (The Bold Type).
R. Lee Fleming, responsible for the script for the original film, returns to the role in the remake. The direction will be on account of Mark Waters, the filmmaker behind the hit Mean Girls (2004). According to Deadline, Netflix plans to release the film by the end of this year.
In addition to Rachael Leigh Cook and Freddie Prinze Jr., the original version of She’s Too Much had names like Paul Walker (Fast and Furious franchise) and Anna Paquin (True Blood). The film grossed more than US $ 100 million (R $ 559 million) at the box office around the world, a figure considered high at the time for a production of the genre.
