'What Men Want'

Taraji P. Henson will star with Tracy Morgan and Aldis Hodge in the comedy "What Men Want," according to Variety. The movie is inspired by the 2000 romantic comedy "What Women Want," which starred Mel Gibson as a marketing executive who could hear what women are thinking. In "What Men Want," the roles are reserved, and Henson, who portrays a sports agent, can hear men's thoughts.
