Arose from TikTok, the two big artists Addison Rae and Tanner Buchanan have been chosen for the lead role. Besides them, Rachael Leigh Cook and Matthew Lillard will return but for a different character this time. Other members of the cast are Madison Pettis, Peyton Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, Annie Jacob, and Myra Molloy.
Rachael Leigh Cook will repeat her role, with the previous featuring as the mother of Addison Rae’s character. Addison took it on Instagram to make the big announcement with the caption, “DREAM COME TRUE @netflix!!!!! ♥️ 190 countries… insane.”
It is expected that the heart of the plot might remain the same to keep the very essence of the movie. The story begins with Addison star as Padgett Sawyer – a well-known influencer who acknowledges a challenge to turn the school’s greatest failure (Buchanan) into the prom king.
‘’I’m excited to be rejoined with so numerous recognizable faces! This version encompasses an incredible modern turn that I think individuals will truly appreciate.” Leigh Cook said in an interview. Seems like Cook is all on toes for this movie. There is no official release date yet.
