Rebel Wilson to star in 'Private Benjamin' remake

Posted: 08 May 2014 10:50 PM PDT

The Aussie actress is set to star in an updated version of the classic film.

Rebel Wilson is ready for a new challenge – the Marines – as the popular comedienne is attached to star in New Line's reboot of the Goldie Hawn's 1980 comedy Private Benjamin, TheWrap has learned.

Private Benjamin will follow a redneck (Wilson) and a rich city girl who get more than they bargained for when they enlist in the Marines to escape their present situations.

Mark Gordon is producing the movie, which would seem to be a natural fit for Wilson's comedic sensibility. New Line is currently seeking a director for the modern day update.

The original Private Benjamin grossed nearly US$70mil at the domestic box office back in 1980, and its success spawned a short-lived TV series.

Wilson, who currently stars on the ABC sitcom Super Fun Night, will soon begin filming Universal's Pitch Perfect 2 with Anna Kendrick. She recently signed on for a supporting role in Night At The Museum 3. — Reuters

Power Rangers on the big screen: Now, with more power!

Posted: 08 May 2014 10:50 PM PDT

TV's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will finally get a movie.

More than 20 years after taking children's television by storm, the Power Rangers are morphing into the movies.

In a statement, production house Lionsgate said it is partnering with Saban Brands, which owns the rights to Power Rangers, to develop "an original live-action feature film based on the iconic Power Rangers property".

No release date was given, but Lionsgate – whose youth-oriented blockbusters include The Hunger Games and the Twilight franchise – said the film version would "re-envision" the Power Rangers saga.

Adapted from Japan's long-running Super Sentai television series, the Power Rangers is a group of teenagers who "morph" into superheros in bright spandex suits and helmets, ready to combat evil.

The show premiered in the United States in 1993 as the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and promptly became a global pop culture hit, supported by a vast range of Power Rangers toys, costumes, videogames and comic books.

Still in production under the title Power Rangers: Super Megaforce, the programme is seen in more than 150 markets around the world and translated into several languages.

Haim Saban, the Israeli-American media entrepreneur who created the series, said the tie-up with Lionsgate should result in "a unique and memorable motion picture phenomenon with a legacy all its own". — AFP Relaxnews
