    Ok, maybe that's not fair. Kate Hudson shouldn't be offered the title role in a remake of Private Benjamin just because her mother Goldie Hawn originally played the character and shot to superstardom because of it! Anna Faris is actually a pitch-perfect choice to play the army cadet, given Faris' natural gift for physical comedy.

    New Line is remaking the film, which was initially released in 1980. It will be updated for modern times. The film was one of the top-grossing flicks the year it was released. Producers say the remake won't make enlisted men and women the butt of its jokes; rather, it will center on how military service is empowering and can be a fish-out-of-water scenario for enlistees.

    Do you think Anna Faris will do Goldie Hawn's former role proud? Or would you have liked to see Kate Hudson have a go at the character?
