The original movie, which stars Goldie Hawn, follows a woman who joins the army after her husband dies on their wedding night — during sex, no less. The remake, however, will be updated with Wilson's signature comedic chops. The comedian will play a redneck who enlists in the Marines to get out of what's being described as a "tough situation."
Mark Gordon, who's known for Saving Private Ryan and 2012, is producing, so some military authenticity can be expected — on top of Wilson's enviable slapstick. The film is reportedly looking for a director and supporting cast. Here's hoping they nab some of her Pitch Perfect costars. (Variety)
