Actor Miles Teller is set to star in a modernized version of the classic 1982 film “An Officer and a Gentleman” for Paramount Pictures. Teller, fresh off the success of “Top Gun: Maverick,” will take on a role similar to that of Richard Gere in the original, portraying a young man navigating the challenges of naval training.

The original film, directed by Taylor Hackford, was a box office smash and critical darling, earning six Academy Award nominations and two wins, including Best Supporting Actor for Louis Gossett Jr and Best Original Song. The film’s story centres on Gere’s character, a troubled young man who joins the Army. As he experiences the highs and lows of the Academy, he reaches a pivotal moment, uncertain about his future direction. Amidst this turmoil, Gere’s character falls in love with a girl, portrayed by Debra Winger, who comes from a different background. His pursuit of her is complicated by Louis Gossett Jr.’s strict Marine sergeant, presenting yet another challenge for Gere’s character.

Details about the remake’s plot and characters are still under wraps, but it’s described as a modern update of the original story. Dana Fox penned the latest draft of the screenplay, building upon an earlier version by Matt Johnson. Temple Hill will produce the film for Paramount.

Teller is no stranger to portraying characters within the military world.  His recent role as “Rooster” Bradshaw in “Top Gun: Maverick” proved to be a hit, and audiences are likely eager to see him take on a new challenge within this genre.

This project continues Teller’s hot streak in Hollywood.  He recently starred opposite Chris Hemsworth in the Netflix sci-fi thriller “Spiderhead,” and is slated to appear in both the upcoming thriller “The Gorge” with Anya Taylor-Joy and the Michael Jackson biopic “Michael.”
