(Sarcastically) Exciting News: Hollywood to Remake a Body Swap Movie
1984’s All of Me was a very a good body-switching movie or, well, body-semi-switching movie. Lily Tomlin’s character plans on a full swap but somehow ends up sharing Steve Martin’s body with Steve. ‘Twas a Steve Martin tour de funny. And now, almost 20 years later, DreamWorks is working on a remake. (This was after a previous attempt at a remake that would’ve starred Queen Latifah.) Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, who previously wrote The Vow and Never Been Kissed, have written the script. The plan is for the remake to be about a man whose soul ends up sharing a woman’s body. This is why we can’t have nice things.
