Miles Teller to star in An Officer and a Gentleman remake

Date:

Miles Teller is ready to star in a remake of the Richard Gere basic, An Officer and a Gentleman.

One of the crucial well-known Hollywood legends includes Richard Gere changing into a celebrity by taking two roles John Travolta notoriously handed on. One was American Gigolo; the opposite was An Officer and a Gentleman. The latter movie made $130 million on the home field workplace (in 1982 {dollars}) and propelled Gere to superstardom. And now, Deadline is reporting that Prime Gun: Maverick star Miles Teller is ready to star in a remake of the movie for Paramount Photos.

Whereas many might roll their eyes and dismiss An Officer and a Gentleman as schmaltz, they actually shouldn’t. It’s a film I truly hadn’t seen till just a few years in the past, as I assumed it could be a soapy melodrama. It’s truly a fairly powerful and gritty romantic drama. I feel folks outline it by the sentimental ending the place Richard Gere, in his Navy Whites, sweeps Debra Winger off her ft as Joe Cocker’s “Up Where We Belong” performs. Nonetheless, the remainder of the movie is fairly hard-R, making me surprise if the brand new movie could have the sting Taylor Hackford’s unique had.

Teller is ready to play the Gere position, the place he performed a loner who enlists in Navy officer coaching beneath a tough-as-nails drill sergeant (performed by the late Louis Gossett Jr, who received an Oscar for the position), solely to fall in love with a townie performed by Winger. The film climaxes in a fairly nifty martial arts battle between Gossett and Gere, the place the previous delivers one of the crucial brutal ending strikes of all time (the crotch kick to finish all crotch kicks). 

It feels like a wise position for Teller. The film has the potential to be very a lot within the vein of Prime Gun: Maverick, as he’ll as soon as once more be taking part in a naval aviator. At thirty-seven, he is likely to be a bit lengthy within the tooth to be taking part in an officer in coaching, however the story might solely use the naked bones of the unique’s plot, so we’ll see.

Within the meantime, Teller has a full dance card. He stars reverse Anya Taylor-Pleasure in Scott Derrickson’s The Gorge and co-stars within the upcoming Michael Jackson biopic Michael, wherein he performs MJ’s lawyer.

Is An Officer and a Gentleman ripe for a remake, and is Teller the correct man to star? Tell us within the feedback.
