ADDISON Rae, who blew up as a TikTok star, is set to star in a reboot of She’s All That, which will land on Netflix on August 27.
Rae and her co-star Tanner Buchanan sparked dating rumors after they recently shared a spicy kiss, but the two are reportedly just friends.
What is He’s All That?
He’s All That, which is in pre-production, is a reboot of the teen flick She’s All That, which starred Rachael Leigh Cook and Freddie Prinze Jr.
The TikTok star plays a female version of Prinze’s character as she gives a male classmate a makeover.
It is a gender swap of the 1999 film that saw Cook’s character get a makeover from Prinze’s jock and his sister.
“I’m so excited to finally share the news that i am getting the opportunity to make my acting debut in HE’S ALL THAT which is a remake of one of my all time favorite movies, SHE’S ALL THAT,” Rae wrote on Instagram earlier this year.
“I’m so grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to me and none of it would have ever happened without every single one of you.
I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!!
“I can’t wait for you to see it!!! I can’t wait to work with this amazing team and everyone involved in making the film and am so thankful to everyone who gave me this incredible opportunity.”
Netflix picked up the Miramax movie in a $20million deal, and it will be released globally later this year.

The actress also appeared in 1999s She’s All That; however, under a different character in Laney Boggs – a dorky, solitary, unpopular art student.
What did the trailer release?
As Addison found fame with her viral videos on TikTok, Netflix chose the same social media platform as the perfect place to debut the trailer on August 4, 2021.
The trailer, which was later released on other platforms after dropping live on TikTok, features a remix of Sixpence None The Richer’s Kiss Me, the iconic soundtrack song in the original movie.
The ’90s film focused on a popular jock Zack (Freddie Prinze Jr.) trying to turn a “nerdy girl” Laney (Rachael Leigh Cook) into the prom queen after being dumped.
The new 2021 version centers on: “Teen social media influencer Padgett’s humiliating on-camera breakup goes viral, leading her to make a risky bet to save her reputation.
“She swears she can turn scruffy antisocial Cameron [Tanner] into prom king material. But things get complicated when she finds herself falling for him IRL.”
Tanner’s character even says a version of Laney’s famous “Am I a bet?” line from the 1999 flick.
Addison’s real-life BFF, Kourtney Kardashian, appeared briefly in the He’s All That trailer, teasing more to come from her character when the movie releases on Netflix on August 27.
“Who’s the new guy,” her character asks, seemingly to Addison’s Padgett about her remade version of Cameron. “A little scruffy but cute!”
