'Private Benjamin' Remake To Capitalize on Popularity of 1980s Goldie Hawn Comedies

May 7, 2014


Rebel Wilson will apparently become our new Goldie Hawn with a remake of the 1980 comedy Private Benjamin. The film was already largely remade with the 2008 Jessica Simpson comedy Private Valentine, and was last in talks for a remake with Anna Faris in the title role, but according to The Wrap, now Wilson will star in a reinterpretation that sees Wilson playing a redneck who joins a city girl in getting in over their heads in the Marines. If nothing else, at least this settles who we'll put in the eventual Housesitter re-imagining.
