First the Instagram influencers were taking over the world (more so the modeling world) and now TikTok influencers are taking over Hollywood.

Kourtney Kardashian‘s new BFF (I don't get it either), Addison Rae, has landed the starring role in a new, gender-swapped version of 1999 teen romantic comedy She’s All That, called He’s All That.

Rae, who has over 60 million followers, is the second most popular TikTok user in the world (after Charli D’Amelio), and He’s All That will mark her film debut.

Yesterday (September 11, 2020) Rae confirmed on her Instagram that she will indeed star in the She's All That remake.

“AHHHHH!!! My dreams are coming true!!!

Rae continued by adding that she “can't wait” for everyone to see it. “I can’t wait to work with this amazing team and everyone involved in making the film and am so thankful to everyone who gave me this incredible opportunity,” she added. “THANK YOU!! I’m so excited for y’all to meet Padget!!! ❤️”

The wildly popular '90s movie featured quite the all-star cast in its day, including Freddie Prinze Jr. as Zackary Siler and Paul Walker playing Dean Sampson as they bet on the affections of the nerdy Laney Boggs, played by Rachael Leigh Cook. Additionally, the romance comedy also starred Usher, Lil' Kim, Gabrielle Union, Anna Paquin, Matthew Lillard, Clea DuVall and Kieran Culkin.

In the remake, roles will be reversed, as the plot centers around a teenage girl who turns a nerdy boy into prom king, according to Variety.
