Skyes all over ‘All of Me’

New Line is planning a remake of the 1984 comedy starring Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin and set scribes Brent Goldberg and David Wagner to write a modern take on the story. Studio is aiming to cast Wanda Sykes in the Tomlin role of a dying heiress who tries to transfer her soul to a young woman but instead finds herself possessing the right side of the body of her lawyer, played by Martin in the original. Sykes has held initial meetings with the studio but is waiting to see a final version of the script before attaching to the project.
