Taraji P. Henson can hear men's inner thoughts in her new movie, and Twitter is divided
It’s a remake of 2000′s ‘What Women Want’.

TARAJI P. HENSON’S new movie looks set to be a doozie.

‘What Men Want’ sees the Oscar nominee find out she has the ability to read male minds in the upcoming comedy remake.

The film — a re-envisioning of the story first introduced in the Mel Gibson-fronted, Nancy Meyers-directed romance ‘What Women Want’ – follows Ali, a determined professional grappling with career-impeding sexism at her high profile job.

After being passed over for a promotion, Ali turns to her friends for advice.

They promptly deliver her to a spiritual guide (Erykah Badu, obviously) who concocts a potent tea filled with “jasmine. weed, peyote, and crack” that alters the course of Ali’s life (and allows her to hear the interior monologue of the men in her immediate surroundings).

The film also stars 30 Rock’s Tracey Morgan, New Girl’s Max Greenfield and, eh, Shaquille O’Neal, with a release slated for January 2018.

So far, the reception to the trailer has been … Mixed.

Hmmm. Will you be heading to the cinema to see this next year?
