Rebel Wilson is Private Benjamin


Rebel Wilson has booked her next project, set to take on a remake of the 1980 Goldie Hawn pic “Private Benjamin”.

New Line will reboot the pic with Mark Gordon on board to produce. A director is not yet attached.

The original comedy saw Hawn play a woman who joins the US Army following the death of her new husband who took his final breath during sex on the wedding night. It was a box office hit taking home $70 million at the domestic box office.

The updated version will see Wilson take on the role of a redneck who joins the Marines to get out of her own sticky situation.

Wilson currently stars in the ABC sitcom “Super Fun Night” and is attached to appear in the upcoming sequel to her 2012 hit “Pitch Perfect”.
