'He's All That' Release Date: When to Watch Addison Rae's 'She's All That' Remake
These days, reboots are all the rage. Whether it is on television or on the big screen, fans seem to go wild over the revival of their favorite shows and films. While not every remake is spot on, many of them are a success, and we expect the upcoming He’s All That will be nothing less than amazing. Fans are counting down the days until they can finally see the new film, so let’s talk about what to expect regarding He’s All That’s release date — when you can finally watch Addison Rae‘s She’s All That remake.
‘She’s All That’ premiered in 1999
She’s All That was an instant hit, premiering in 1999 and starring Rachael Leigh Cook and Freddie Prinze, Jr. as Laney Boggs and Zack Siler. The film is set in California and tells the story of a popular high school jock who makes a bet with his equally popular buddies that he can befriend the most awkward/unpopular girl at school, and turn her into the knockout prom queen in just six weeks. Hilarity ensues, as Laney initially rejects Zack’s attempts to be her “friend,” then finally agrees to have a makeover and be his date at a party. Zack slowly begins to see Laney in a brand-new light, despite being able to have any other girl that he wants. But unfortunately, Laney soon finds out that she was nothing more than a “bet.”
Brokenhearted, Zack learns that Laney has agreed to go to the prom with his friend Dean, portrayed by the late Paul Walker, so he shows up at Laney’s house that night to warn her that Dean was planning to seduce her. The two finally share a kiss, and Zack is forced to keep up his end of the bet — appearing naked at graduation — much to Laney’s delight and amusement. The hit film also featured Matthew Lillard, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, Anna Paquin, and Kieran Culkin.
When is the ‘He’s All That’ release date?
Fans of the original She’s All That are likely eagerly anticipating the release date of He’s All That. So when can they see it? Deadline reports that the remake is set to hit Netflix on Aug. 27. (So the wait is almost over!) Viewers are sure to love the similar premise of the film, which is told from the point of view of a teenage girl — meaning this time, the roles are reversed. It’s the female lead, Padgett Sawyer, who takes on the challenge of turning the unpopular Cameron Kweller into the prom king.
Who are the cast members of ‘He’s All That’?
We all remember the actors and actresses who graced the screen over two decades ago in the original film, so who is starring in the remake? This time around, the cast is made up of Addison Rae as Padgett Sawyer and Tanner Buchanan as Cameron Kweller. Other actors and actresses include Peyton Meyer, Rachael Leigh Cook, Myra Molloy, Madison Pettis, and more. Kourtney Kardashian even makes a cameo in the film.
The upcoming comedy is directed by Mark Waters, and more than likely, fans just can’t wait to see the gender-reversed roles of the original film. Given the success of the first movie, the remake is sure to be a hit. And millions of fans will have a blast from the past when it makes its Netflix debut on Aug. 27.
