What Men Want release date pushed; Taraji P Henson's film will now release on 8 February 2019
Taraji P Henson's comedy film What Men Want, which was scheduled to release on 11 January 2019, will now open on 8 February next year. The news of the delay comes a week after Lionsgate vacated the February date by moving its Seth Rogen-Charlize Theron comedy Flarsky to the summer season, reports variety.com.
What Men Want is a remake of the Mel Gibson comedy What Women Want. Henson stars as a sports agent who, after being passed up for a well-deserved promotion, gains the ability to hear men's thoughts. The movie, directed by Adam Shankman, also stars actors Aldis Hodge and Tracy Morgan.
What Women Want, directed by Nancy Meyers, grossed $374 million worldwide.
Written by Josh Goldsmith, Cathy Yuspa, and Diane Drake, What Women Want was released in 2000. It starred Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt in titular roles. A Chinese remake was released in 2011, directed by Chen Daming starring Andy Lau alongside Gong Li.
In 2017, Paramount Players announced that they were eyeing Taraji P. Henson to make the movie from the viewpoint of a woman who could hear men's thoughts.
