It always creeps me out to see remakes of films that came out while I was alive. I understand why Hollywood feels that remaking a 1950s film might be necessary, but a film that came out in 1984? Are we running out of material or what?

New Line will remake All of Me, the 1984 comedy that starred Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin.


Latifah for All of Me


New Line has picked up Queen Latifah to star with Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot to produce All of Me.

The original All of Me, directed by Carl Reiner, starred Tomlin as a dying heiress whose soul inhabits the body of a successful attorney, played by Martin. I have seen this movie, which makes the remake all the freakier.

New Line has been developing the remake for the past two years, with scribes Brent Goldbert and David Wagner hired to write a modern take on the story. Speaking of modern, Wonda Sykes was the original option to play the Tomlin role.



All of Me is Latifah's third project with Shankman, following Bringing Down the House at Disney and the upcoming Hairspray at New Line. Latifah, who plays Motormouth Maybelle in Hairspray, is currently working on Mad Money in Louisiana along with Diane Keaton, Ted Danson and Katie Holmes.

Stay tuned for updates.
