Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson will reunite with Will Packer next year for the comedy, “What Men Want.” The “Empire” star posted the big news on her Instagram account earlier today with the above black and white photo and the following caption:

#WeUpToSomething 😘@willpowerpacker You mean soooooo much to me!!! Thank you for always believing in my talent!!! NOW LET’S MAKE ANOTHER HIT!!! #WhatMenWant#FinallyAComedy!!! #GODIS 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾💋💋💋

According to DEADLINE, “What Men Want” is inspired by the 2000 film, “What Women Want,” that starred Mel Gibson as a confident chauvinistic male who suddenly acquires the ability to hear what the women around him are really thinking. Packer’s version will feature Henson as a  female sports agent who has been constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When she gains the power to hear men’s thoughts, she is able to shift the paradigm to her advantage as she races to sign the NBA’s next superstar. The film will be released January 11, 2019.

Look for Henson to also star in “Best of Enemies,” “Proud Mary” and “Acrimony.”
