The cult romantic drama "Officer and Gentleman" in which she played the main role Richard Gere, will soon get a new version, confirmed by "Variety".

She will play the main role in the upcoming film Miles Teller, the star of Whiplash and Top Gun: Maverick. It is not yet known who will play the female lead.

The original film premiered in 1982 and was a major commercial and critical success. The cast consisted of Richard Gere, Debra Winger, David Keith and Louis Gossett Jr.

The story follows Zach Mayo, a young man who has entered the US Naval Air Force Academy. Due to his wild personality, Zack often gets into conflicts with his superiors, including his teacher. Everything changes when Zack meets Paula, a young factory worker who dreams of leaving her small town.

The movie "An Officer and a Gentleman" is considered by many to be the forerunner of Top Gun. The film received six Oscar nominations and won two – one for Best Song and one for Best Supporting Actor.

The script for the new film was written by Dana Fox and Matt Johnson.
