The original film was directed by Nancy Meyers and starred Gibson as a New York ad exec who, after a freak accident, is able to read womenâs minds and uses the new ability to move ahead of both professionally and personally.
In this version, Henson would play a female sports agent who has been constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When she gains the power to hear menâs thoughts, she is able to shift the paradigm to her advantage as she races to sign the NBAâs next superstar.
Will Packer, who previously worked with Henson on âNo Good Deed,â and James Lopez will produce the film, while Henson will serve as executive producer.
Paramount Pictures will release the film Jan. 11, 2019.
