Queen Latifah to Star in "All of Me" Remake

by | April 27, 2007 | Comments

Anyone remember a funny old comedy from 1984 called "All of Me"? Steve Martin found himself half-possessed by the ghost of Lily Tomlin? (I actually love this movie.) Anyway, someone’s doing a remake and Queen Latifah is going to star.

Adam Shankman, a frequent Latifah collaborator, will be on board to produce (and maybe direct?) Brent Goldberg and David Wagner were hired to pen the adaptation back when it was supposed to be a vehicle for Wanda Sykes, but it belongs to the Queen now. This’ll be the third time Latifah and Shankman make a movie together. They did "Bringing Down the House" together, as well as this summer’s "Hairspray."

Apparently the remake will take place in the world of politics, with liberal Latifah’s bod being partially possessed by a conservative type. So it’ll be a supernatural political comedy. You don’t see many of those.
