Addison Rae is making a name for herself in the showbiz industry after hitting the spotlight thanks to TikTok, and now the influencer is preparing to make her acting debut on the big screen – well, Netflix, which is just as big.
The 19-year-old has been cast as the lead role in She’s All That reboot He’s All That, which is being given a gender swap for the modern remake.
Here's are all the details you need on the 2021 film, from the release date and cast to the trailer and the plot...
The full He's All That trailer shows Addison making her movie debut opposite Tanner Buchanan.
Her character Padget, an influencer of course, accidentally live streams her very messy break up after she discovers her boyfriend's been sleeping with someone else.
As well as internet dramz, the trailer shows there'll be a touch of romance in the chick flick because what is a romcom without the two main leads falling for one another?
Addison's pal Kourtney Kardashian also makes a short appearance in the trailer.
He's All That is coming out on Netflix on 27 August, the streaming platform has confirmed.
Addison and her cast members also confirmed the news on TikTok, naturally, with the cast holding up a card announcing the release date.
She’s All That is the story of a high school jock who ends up falling for an ‘unattractive’ classmate after making a bet he can turn her into prom queen.
The new version, He's All That, on Netflix will reimagine the plot from a teenage girl’s perspective, directed by Mark Waters who directed Mean Girls and Freaky Friday.
