Wilson to enlist as new private Benjamin
Aussie comedienne Rebel Wilson has received her orders to headline the remake of Private Benjamin.
The 1980 original starred Goldie Hawn as a woman who joins the US Army after her new husband dies on their wedding night.
The updated version revolves around a "redneck" (Wilson) and a city girl who enlist in the Marines as an escape from their lives.
Wilson, 28, is currently filming the sequel to the 2012 sleeper hit Pitch Perfect.
