Anna Faris enlists as “Private Benjamin”

Raise your hand if you’re tired of Hollywood remaking your favorite films! Reporting news of remakes is becoming such a daily thing, that I’m considering creating a special page so we can keep track of it all. But until then, the latest in re-make world is the Anna Faris will star in an updated version of “Private Benjamin.”

The film which is being distributed by New Line Cinema will be penned by Amy Talkington who, according to Empire, is also working on the “Valley Girl” remake.  Seriously, make this stop!

On the bright side, this is a lot better than previous news of an “Overboard” remake starring Jennifer Lopez. Unlike Lopez I think Faris has a better chance of capturing Goldie Hawn’s comedic essence. I mean it’s not like they would have hired Kate Hudson because that would just be weird, even though in a perfect world she’d be the obvious choice.

No word on how “updated” this version will be but I’m sure it will be along the lines of “House Bunny” meets “The Hurt Locker”.
