Hit Nineties teen movie She's All That is reportedly getting a remake with diverse leads.

Freddie Prinze Jr and Rachel Leigh Cook starred in the original romcom about high school jock who makes over a geeky art student for a bet, only to fall in love and risk losing her to a popular rival, played by the late Paul Walker.

The 1999 release made more than $100 million at the global box office and now, director Kenny Leon is eying it for a revival, according to industry insider The Tracking Board. Spike Lee’s wife Tonya Lewis Lee is thought to be on board as a producer.

Nothing as been officially confirmed by production companies, with a respresentative for Miramax denying reports of a deal with The Weinstein Company on the title in a statement to Time magazine.

Prinze Jr responded to a fan query about the possible remake on Twitter, simply commenting that it's "tough for writers with original scripts.

Usher, Lil'Kim, Kevin Pollak, Anna Paquin, Matthew Lillard and Gabrielle Union were among the 1999 film's supporting cast and it remains unknown which actors would be courted for roles in a remake.
