Private Benjamin - Nancy Meyers: 'Anna Faris' Private Benjamin Won't Happen'
The woman who created Private Benjamin for Goldie Hawn fears plans for a remake, starring Anna Faris, have stalled.
Writer/director Nancy Meyers came up with the idea behind the hit 1980 film and wrote the script with her ex-husband Charles Shyer.
She has kept abreast of the remake's development, even though she is not directly involved, and she's urging fans of the original not to hold their breath.
She says, "It has has been in development, but I don't think it's gonna happen. I remake movies so I understand the need to do it, but I don't think it's going to be as good. Goldie was the perfect person to play that part."
