New Line has signed Queen Latifah to topline a remake of All of Me, the 1984 comedy that starred Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin, according to Variety.
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.
The new take would see the movie set in the world of politics, where a female Jesse Jackson-type finds herself in the body of a conservative, writes the The Hollywood Reporter.
All of Me is Latifah's third project with Shankman, following Bringing Down the House at Disney and the upcoming Hairspray at New Line.
