Mar 31 2010Entire Goldie Hawn Comedy Catalog Being Remade


With plans for an Overboard remake leaving the public hungry for more 1980s Goldie Hawn comedy remakes, and Jessica Simpson's Major Movie Star leaving audiences clamoring for more films about rich girls in the armed services, New Line has decided to remake Private Benjamin with our modern Goldie (not her similar-looking daughter, strangely), Anna Faris:

“Private Benjamin” is being called up to duty again.

New Line is remaking the seminal 1980 comedy, reconfiguring it for the new century as a starring vehicle for Anna Faris.

“Benjamin” starred Goldie Hawn in a star-making turn as a spoiled woman who joins the Army after her husband dies during sex on their wedding night.

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.

I've always thought some jokes about a wealthy, enlisted socialite being upset that a car bomb-wounded civilian is messing up her hair as he pleads for medical attention was just what we needed to put this polarizing, never-ending war in perspective.

You know, I hate to see another remake, BUT, I honestly think it has a chance.

Agreed Brian. Anna Faris does the dippy blond thing pretty well and she is fun to look at.
