Rebel Wilson to star in “Private Benjamin” remake

Rebel Wilson looks to be slated to star in a remake of the ’80s comedy Goldie Hawn film, Private Benjamin.

The original featured 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.

Wilson’s career has been in high gear lately, with her hit TV show “Super Fun Night” on ABC and several high profile movie roles including “Pitch Perfect,” “Ice Age: Continental Drift,” and “Bridesmaids.”
