Brian Tyler has signed on to score the upcoming romantic comedy What Men Want. The film is directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray, Bringing Down the House, A Walk to Remember) and stars Taraji P. Henson, Tracy Morgan, Aldis Hodge, Max Greenfield and Wendi McLendon-Covey. The movie is inspired by Nancy Meyers’ 2000 feature What Women Want (scored by Alan Silvestri) and follows a female sports agent who has been constantly boxed out by her male colleagues when she gains the power to hear men’s thoughts. Will Packer (Ride Along, Think Like a Man, Girls Trip) and James Lopez (Breaking In) are producing the project. What Men Want is currently shooting and is set to be released on January 11, 2019 by Paramount Pictures.

Tyler’s upcoming projects also include John M. Chu’s Crazy Rich Asians and Taylor Sheridan’s Paramount Network series Yellowstone.
