Anna Faris to Star in "Private Benjamin" Remake

Posted: April 6th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Anna Faris to Star in "Private Benjamin" RemakeSubmit Comment
New Line is remaking the 1980 comedy "Private Benjamin," reconfiguring it for the new century as a starring vehicle for Anna Faris (Scary Movie). Amy Talkington is in discussions to write the new film.

“Benjamin” starred Goldie Hawn as a spoiled woman who joins the Army after her husband dies during sex on their wedding night. One of the top-grossing movies of that year, “Benjamin” was hailed for tackling women's issues and earned three Oscar nominations — for Hawn, supporting actress Eileen Brennan and original screenplay.

The new take will set the story in contemporary times with modern wars as the backdrop. Insiders say the studio doesn't want to poke fun at the men and women in the service or take political potshots, but rather focus on the empowerment elements and build on the fish-out-of-water comedy.

The title joins "Vacation" and "Police Academy" as the latest titles from the Warner Bros' library that New Line is remaking.

I usually don't harp on stuff like this, but isn't this really old news? How uninteresting it is however is a whole other story.

The Oscars might as well go the same route as the Tonys and add a "Best Remake" category.

@Encore
That how I hope to go out, either that or die on the sh*tter. Can you help me out here though, for some reason I just don't give a sh*t, can you help me find a reason to care?

Sounds like a porno sequel to Shaving Ryan's Privates.

Might be throwing myself to the wolves, but I gotta give it up to Anna Faris in the "Dumb Bimbo" department. I actually enjoyed "TheHouseBunny". Tons of hot tail and actually pretty funny. Not saying that its right to remake PrivateBenjamin, but at least they didn't cast Kate *A-Cup* Hudson for this! All I know is that my girlfriend gets to have her movie nights too, and if I've gotta sit through a RomCom/FamCom, this wouldn't be so bad.

They already remade this with Jessica Simpson straight to video.

Hollywood has serious memory loss which explains the crap they keep churning out.
