La estrella de Tik Tok, Addison Rae, da el salto a Hollywood

The social network Tik Tok is more fashionable than ever and Addison Rae who has 60 million followers will star in a romantic comedy for teenagers.

They're planning the remake of the 1999 romantic comedy Someone like you (She’s All That) and they have signed the star of Tik Tok, Addison Rae, for the title role. The original film starred Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael leigh cook and it's the story of a popular high school jock (Prinze Jr.) who tries to transform an unpopular girl (Cook) after his girlfriend dumped him. Although the film received mixed reviews, it has since become a cult classic. They also participated in the cast Matthew Lillard, Usher, Lil 'Kim and Gabrielle Union.

In 2015, with Hollywood swimming in nostalgia, there were rumors that Someone like You would get a new version. However, not much information was revealed. Miramax, the studio behind the original, initially denied that a reboot was happening. Since no other information about another movie had been released so far.

The Tik Tok star reportedly, Addison rae has been cast in the remake, but it is not for the role that fans might expect. Rather than remaking the exact same movie, the new story will switch genres. That's why instead of being called She’s All That, it will be titled He’s All That. The story will focus on an influencer girl trying to make a nerd boy popular. For now it is not known who will make the male character.

Many of those who participated in the original film will repeat in the remake.

R. Lee Fleming, the writer of the first film, will also write the reboot, while original producers Jennifer Gibgot and Andrew Panay are set to return. Miramax will be behind the new movie. Plus Mark Waters, the veteran filmmaker behind Bad Girls and put yourself in my place, will be the new director. So Tik Tok star Addison Rae will have a good team behind him for his debut on Hollywood.

Someone Like You (She’s All That) used iconic music from the 90s and early 2000s, and it looks like the remake will do the same from the current era.

Addison rae is one of the most popular figures in Tik Tok, with more than 60 million followers on the app and an estimated $ 5 million in 2019. The 19-year-old has yet to act in any television or film roles, but she recently signed with the talent agency WME. . She will be one of the first Tik Tok stars to act in a major movie, and while she has no experience in that field yet, she is sure to attract a large audience. Luckily it will interpret itself.

This may set a trend for years to come, as actors, instead of being measured by their acting quality, could get roles solely by the number of followers they have. If the 60 million fans of Addison Rae's Tik Tok go to the movies to see her, the remake of Someone like You will be a brutal success.
