Glen Powell To Star In Remake Of ‘Heaven Can Wait’

Glen Powell has a new movie on the horizon!

In a twist of Hollywood fate announced on Tuesday (May 21), Paramount has decided to dust off the 1978 classic *Heaven Can Wait* and give it a modern makeover, with our favorite 35-year-old heartthrob from *Anyone But You* set to star.

The plot thickens as Stephen Gaghan, the genius who snagged an Oscar for penning the screenplay for 2000’s *Traffic*, is on board to sprinkle his magic over the remake. This delightful tidbit comes courtesy of the ever-reliable Hollywood Reporter.

For those who missed the 1978 train, *Heaven Can Wait* featured Warren Beatty as an NFL quarterback who gets a premature one-way ticket to the afterlife thanks to a jittery angel. He gets sent back to Earth, but not as himself – instead, he inhabits the body of a recently murdered millionaire. Talk about trading up! Beatty didn’t just star in the film; he also co-directed it with Buck Henry and co-wrote the screenplay with Elaine May. Talk about a triple threat!

So, get ready for Glen Powell to take on this heavenly role – it’s bound to be a wild ride!
