DreamWorks Pictures is planning to mount a remake of the 1984 comedy All of Me, according to THR. The Vow screenwriters Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein wrote the screenplay, which is being developed by producer John Davis (Chronicle).
Lily Tomlin & Steve Martin starred in the original movie, directed by Carl Reiner, with Tomlin as a dying millionaire who tries to transfer her soul into a younger woman. Things go awry when she actually transfers herself into the body of her attorney (Martin). The remake would flip the premise, having the man’s soul enter the body of a woman.
Back in April 2007, New Line Cinema was developing this remake as a starring vehicle for Queen Latifah. It doesn’t look like she’s involved anymore as DreamWorks picked up the remake rights out of turnaround last year.
