On January 11, 2019, the next gender-swapping film no one wants is coming. What Men Want, based on the 2000 film What Women Want, although apparently that film’s original director, Nancy Meyers, came up with the story for this new film. The synopsis is as follows:
Ali Davis (Played by Taraji P. Henson) is a successful sports agent who’s constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When Ali is passed up for a well-deserved promotion, she questions what else she needs to do to succeed in a man’s world… until she gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts! With her newfound power, Ali looks to outsmart her colleagues as she races to sign the next basketball superstar, but the lengths she has to go to will put her relationship with her best friends and a potential new love interest to the test.
What Men Want co-stars Aldis Hodge and Tracy Morgan. It is directed by Adam Shankman. Check out the new trailer for the film below:
