According to Deadline, Hidden Figures actress Henson will star in What Men Want, a movie about a woman who wakes up with the gift (?!) of reading the thoughts of every man around her. If you’re thinking “Hey, didn’t they already make that movie, but with Mel Gibson?“, you’re absolutely right. This will be just like that, but it already sounds way, way better.
What Men Want will be based on the 2000 Nancy Meyers film What Women Want, which starred the Daddy’s Home 2 actor as Nick, a sexist advertising executive who’s granted that mind-reading gift, but with women. Though he initially starts off manipulating the ladies around him for sex and career boosts (eww), he eventually realizes that he can use the power to understand the gender that he so often dismissed.
