“She’s All That” was released on Jan. 29, 1999. Lionsgate

It’s been 19 years since the classic, teen rom-com “She’s All That,” which majorly kicked off the career of its star Rachael Leigh Cook and cemented the status of her co-star Freddie Prinze Jr. as a film heartthrob, came out on Jan. 29, 1999 and Cook still has a lot of thoughts about the movie, the parody film it spawned and the idea of a remake version.

Earlier in the month, when a few fans of hers took to Twitter to chat about her movies, including the possibility of a “She’s All That” remake and how they’d protest if it ever happened, Cook broke it to them that because the movie was based on “Pygmalion,” which also became the basis of “My Fair Lady,” that the 1999 teen flick was “fair game for a remake.”

Since that a one sentence tweet about this important topic was not nearly enough, International Business Times asked the actress more when we spoke with her prior to the premiere of her new Hallmark movie, “Frozen In Love.”

“I think that it would be neat,” she told IBT about a remake of the iconic movie. “I think it would be a heck of a lot easier than being spoofed, which has already happened to us.”

She’s referring to, of course, the 2001 parody film “Not Another Teen Movie,” which starred Chyler Leigh and Chris Evans as spoofed versions of Cook and Prinze Jr.’s characters, respectively. Though the film had quite the audience all its own, Cook revealed that she’s never actually seen it.

“I don’t think I ever will, but not that they didn’t do a good job with it, I’m sure that they did,” she said. “I think I just thought, ‘I know what this is going to be, I know I’m ridiculous, you know we’re ridiculous, I’m just gonna let you guys do your thing, you don’t need my $12 dollars or whatever a movie ticket cost at that time.’”

Forgetting the past parody for a second, Cook continued on about a remake, thinking that it “would be kind of a cool thing” because no one “could ever truly replace someone, it’s just a different interpretation of the role.” That said, she has no ideas on who would make for good, new leads.

A “She’s All That” remake or not, Cook is sure that she wants to work with her co-star from that film again. The actress thinks it “would be fun” to star in a Hallmark movie with Prinze Jr., though she said it’s unlikely to happen due to budget constraints. She added that it “would be cool” to work with him in any way she could, including in the voiceover world, where they are both active.

For now, fans will just have to settle for watching 1999’s “She’s All That” over and over again, which, really, isn’t settling at all.
