Rebel Wilson is apparently set to star in a remake of 1980’s smash film Private Benjamin, The Wrap reports.
The star of Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids is to take on the role of a redneck who along with a rich city girl joins the Marines to escape her current lifestyle.
Mark Gordon is to produce the comedy, though the film is still seeking a director.
The original movie starred Goldie Hawn as Private Benjamin and grossed nearly $70 million at the US box office. It also spawned a short lived TV series.
I don’t know how many of you have seen the original, but it is a really funny film. I’m not entirely sure I’m comfortable with the idea of a remake, I must admit.
In the meantime, Rebel will be appearing on our screens in ABC sitcom Super Fun Night and she is soon to start filming Pitch Perfect 2 with Anna Kendrick.
