Ready to know What Boys Want?

New Line has nabbed comedy idea What Boys Want, and is trying to get Disney channel star Selena Gomez to take the lead.

There are few details yet about the exact plot (it is, after all, still just a pitch right now), but it's revolves around a teenager who discovers that she can hear what men are thinking.

Yes, it sounds suspiciously less like an original idea and more like a female spin on the basic idea that drove the 2000 Mel Gibson comedy What Women Want (below).

The studio is hoping we'll all ignore that little detail and instead get wrapped up in the idea that one of the stars if Wizards Of Waverly Place will be enough to drag her established fanbase to see the film.

Sadly, the executives are probably right...
