Rebel Wilson for Private Benjamin remake
The remake of Private Benjamin may see Rebel Wilson taking on the role made famous by Goldie Hawn...
New Line is pressing ahead with the proposed remake of Private Benjamin, and it may have finally found someone to step into Goldie Hawn's army uniform. The Tracking Board is reporting that not only is the remake now apparently happening, but that Rebel Wilson is in line to take on the lead role.
The project was at one time going to happen with Anna Faris taking on Hawn's role. But the casting of Wilson - who's currently at work on Pitch Perfect 2 - would make this far likelier to go ahead. No director has yet been found for the project, which - like the first film - will tell of a woman struggling to get to grips with life in the army. Mark Gordon is set to produce.
