What Men Want is a 2019 Screen Rant was invited to Atlanta, GA earlier this year to visit the set of Paramount's What Men Want, a new comedy starring Taraji P. Henson that's a re-imagining of 2000's What Women Want with the genders reversed. The film is produced by Will Packer and James Lopez (Girl's Trip), is directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray), and also stars Tracy Morgan, Aldis Hodge, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Richard Roundtree. The first trailer was released earlier today, and in it, audiences got their first look at Henson's character, Ali Davis, a sports agent who struggles to get ahead in her male-dominated field but gains the upper hand when she develops the ability to hear men's thoughts. Ali has spent her whole life around men, raised by a single father, a former boxer (Roundtree), and that's where she is most comfortable. However, being a woman in a man's world isn't always easy, and having worked twice as hard for half the reward, she's become a little bitter. After she's passed over for a well-deserved promotion, her frustration leads to a wild and strange night out with her friends. When she wakes up the next day, Ali discovers that she's developed the power to hear men's thoughts - every single one.
