‘Makeovers are my thing. I will create the next prom king… He is a total disaster, weird, antisocial,’ it is said in quick quips.  

The movie is directed by Mark Waters with R Lee Fleming Jr as the writer.

Addison’s close friend Kourtney Kardashian, 41, has a small role in the movie as Jessica Miles Torres.

Cook is also in the redo playing Padgett’s mother Anna Sawyer. 

Rae was cast in the film in September 2020 and this is her first acting role.

The beauty was a dancer before landing massive fame on TikTok; she is one of the highest-paid performers on the platform. Her fame got another boost when she was taken under the Kardashian wing a year ago.

Rae is not taking on the role played by Cook in the original romantic comedy.

Instead, she snapped up the role played by Prinze Jr because the movie will be about a woman tries to make over a man in a Pygmalion storyline. 

It has been over 20 years since the classic Nineties romantic comedy made over $100M.

The film also starred Paul Walker, and Anna Paquin as well as Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, and Kieran Culkin with cameos from Usher, Lil’ Kim and Gabrielle Union.

He and fellow jock Dean Sampson (Paul) battle for Laney’s attention throughout the film, before she inevitably chooses just one of them.

The hit teen comedy grossed more than $100 million worldwide, and the modern take is set to follow a similar premise.   

Rae has also modeled for Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS line. 

Good luck: Rae's fame got a boost when she was taken under the Kardashian wing last summer. Seen with Kourtney, who has a small role in the film
