Not only did Goldie Hawn unleash Kate Hudson on the world, she also unleashed a slew of films about bubbly blondes who get caught up in love, murder and international intrigue. With the recent announcement that Hollywood would be remaking Hawn's 1980 classic Private Benjamin with Anna Faris and 1987's Overboard with Jennifer Lopez, it seems like goodwill towards her films is at an all-time high, so we figured we'd get in on the ground floor of this new Goldie Age and pitch remakes of some of our favorite Hawn vehicles. Here are the movies that we'd like to see re-done and who we'd like to see star in them.
Can you believe it's been almost 20 years since The Bodyguard came out? Whitney Houston was a youngish 29, and not yet crazy, and Kevin Costner played the man hired to keep the threatened pop singer safe. Well, now plans to remake the movie have resurfaced, and Warner Bros. is looking to cast an international pop star in the lead role. While Rihanna was suggested for the part almost two years ago, nobody is attached to this new iteration, so we thought we'd envision how the story might be tailored to today's biggest stars, and who might be hired to protect them.
Jon Favreau must really like AC/DC. Or, more likely, the band's blistering guitar rock, violent lyrics and electrically inspired name simply make them perfect candidates to provide the entire soundtrack to Iron Man 2. Rockers providing soundtracks is nothing new, but rather than featuring all-new songs, like Queen did for Highlander and Daft Punk is doing for Tron, the AC/DC soundtrack will be a "greatest hits" collection, including some of their best-known anthems from as far back as 1976. (The promo video is set to 1980's "Shoot to Thrill.") With this in mind, we looked at other tentpole films slated for this year and picked the bands (and solo artists) with suitable back catalogs to provide all of the music for each movie.
