New Line has signed Queen Latifah to topline a remake of All of Me, the 1984 comedy that starred Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin, reports Variety.
Adam Shankman and Offspring Entertainment partner Jennifer Gibgot will produce with Ira Posansky. Latifah will executive produce with Shakim Compere, her manager and partner in Flavor Unit.
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.
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 is currently working on Mad Money in Louisiana along with Diane Keaton, Ted Danson and Katie Holmes.
