2017 has been an outstanding year for Taraji P. Henson!!
The "Empire" actress has landed yet another gig. And for this particular project, she will star in the remake of the 2000 Mel Gibson flick ‘What Women Want’ that will titled ‘What Men Want.’
The original film was directed by Nancy Meyers and starred Mel Gibson “as a New York ad exec who, after a freak accident, is able to read women’s minds and uses the new ability to move ahead both professionally and personally.”
According to Variety, Taraji will play a female sports agent in the new version, who has been constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When she gains the power to hear men’s thoughts, she is able to shift the paradigm to her advantage as she races to sign the NBA’s next superstar.
‘What Men Want’ is set to drop in 2019 and will be produced by Girls Trip, producer Will Packer.
