F-ck me, Hollywood’s been making body-switch movies so long they’re running out of titles. Don’t believe me? The phenomenon even has its own Wikipedia page. Most recently there was 17 Again with Zac Efron, and now Ashton Kutcher’s getting in the mix (that’s black slang, grandpa).
Story centers on a superstar NFL quarterback and a 12-year-old middle school geek who magically trade bodies, then quickly learn valuable lessons about humility and courage.
Hmmm, so what? It’s been done before. I don’t think we’re interested. What do you call it?
“Traded” had been developed at DreamWorks but became the property of Par following DreamWorks’ exit in the fall. [Variety]
