She’s definitely all that! Addison Rae Easterling, one of the biggest TikTok influencers, will now make her acting debut in the gender swap remake of She’s All That, now titled He’s All That. The reboot of this 90s classic will be directed by filmmaker Mark Waters who directed some of our other favorite films such as Freaky Friday and Mean Girls

According to Variety, Addison will take on the role inspired by the character Zackary Siler from the original film. However, instead of playing the stereotypical popular high school girl, Addison will play the role of a popular influencer. 

Addison took to Instagram on Friday to share her exciting news of being casted in this upcoming remake. 

“AHHHHH!!! My dreams are coming true!!! I’m so excited to finally share the news that I am getting the opportunity to make my acting debut in HE’S ALL THAT, which is a remake of one of my all time favorite movies, SHE’S ALL THAT. I’m so grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to me, and none of it would have ever happened without every single one of you. I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!!” Said Addison. 

This reboot should be an exciting new twist on this classic film. It will be interesting to see the roles reserved with Addison playing the popular influencer having to makeover the nerdy guy into the ultimate cool boy. Having her character be an influencer is another unique modern take of this remake. 

One thing for sure that fans of the original movie don’t have to worry about is it looks like the film will be sticking to the same storyline, yet with the obvious role reversal between the two characters. 

Let’s hope in this reboot; we still see the bet between the two characters to help the guy win prom king this time. It will also be fun to see a boy get a makeover scene for once. 

As for now, there is not much other information surrounding the release date and other members who have been casted in the film. 

Overall, this should be an exciting and modern-day remake of this teen romantic comedy. Are you excited for the reboot of this classic film? Who do you think will play Addison’s love interest? Stay tuned for more updates!
