The Mel Gibson-led What Women Want remake has added comedian and actor Tracy Morgan and Aldis Hodge (Underground) to star in the 2000 romantic comedy redo.

Last year it was announced Taraji P. Henson would take over Gibson’s role in the modern day version titled, What Men Want, a move that would team the 47-year-old up with Will Packer yet again for what they’d hope to be more box office success (The Think Like A Man franchise made more than $160 million).

The story follows a savvy sports agent (Henson) whose goal is to sign a big athlete. Things get a little interesting once she realizes she can read the thoughts of the male dominated industry she works in. Sounds promising, right? Here’s the trailer for the original film.

We can totally see Taraji nail this role. The film will hit theaters January 11, 2019.
