Kim Kardashian’s bestie, La La Anthony has been fired from an upcoming gig, as Celebritist has learned from Daily Mail. The sequel that has some of Hollywood’s big names would have been a huge gig to add to her portfolio, but it seems to have fallen through.
La La Anthony was going to co-star with Taraji P. Henson in an upcoming film, ‘What Men Want,’ but now it seems that will only be a dream. The Power actress was not even settled properly in her seat when the development happened. The circumstances surrounding La La’s firing are unclear, but Love B Scott Blog reports that Tamala Jones has already been hired as her replacement.
The movie is a remake of the 2000 romantic comedy, ‘What Women Want.’ The original film starred Mel Gibson as a marketing exec who suddenly has the ability to hear what women are thinking after a freak accident. He learns how he has wrongly abused women in his life and works towards remedying that. In the end, he falls for his biggest rival in the game, Helen Hunt.
In this remake, tables are turned and Taraji is the one with this superpower.
The movie, produced by Will Packer and James Lopez features Taraji, a sports agent who has been constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. She uses her new powers to her advantage that leads to a rush to make her biggest signing yet – a legendary basketballer.
The film is scheduled for release on January 11, 2019.
