Rebel Wilson to Star in Private Benjamin Remake

The Tracking Board reports Rebel Wilson will star in a remake of the '80s comedy Private Benjamin. The original starred Goldie Hawn as a woman who joins the army after her husband dies on their wedding night. The new version casts Wilson as a redneck who, along with a rich city girl, joins the Marines to escape the issues of their present lives. No director is attached yet. It will be like Pitch Perfect’s stairs-running scene, but in green.
