Rachael Leigh Cook is officially set to reprise her role as Laney Boggs in Miramax’s He’s All That. She joins leads Addison Rae and Tanner Buchanan in the gender role-flipped remake of the 1999 romantic comedy She’s All That.

Cook will play Padgett’s wise and caring mother. Madison Pettis, Petyon Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, Annie Jacob and Myra Molloy co-star.
Original producers Jennifer Gibgot and Andrew Panay are producing the updated iteration from a screenplay by R. Lee Fleming, the screenwriter behind the original. Mark Waters is set to direct.
Cook, who was most recently seen starring in the Netflix rom-com, Love, Guaranteed, is repped by Industry Entertainment.
