You go, girl!

Producer Jerry Weintraub has just pitched a remake of the 1977 George Burns movie Oh, God with Betty White in the lead!!

Paul Rudd has also been suggested up to star alongside Betty in the remake, but Warner Bros hasn't yet decided if the movie will actually get made.

Weintraub has been trying to remake the movie for years and before Betty he recently pitched Ellen DeGeneres for the title role.

So the wheels aren't in motion just yet, but they could be soon!

We'd love to see Betty as a leading lady on the silver screen!

    Cool idea, and Betty White would be perfect in George Burns' role, but isnt this a little close to like Bruce Almighty? That was practically a remake.

    Oh, God, was a sucky movie the first time. I can't imagine why anyone would want to remake it. Betty White deserves better.

    Oh my god! YES! DO IT!

    Stupid idea. There is absolutely ZERO reason to remake that film. It seems there are few creative minds left in Hollywood. Television has descended into "reality TV" and movies are bad remakes.

    Wow, what a great idea! Betty White's comeback has been legendary - to say the least! She has always been a funny lady - in The MTM Show and The Golden Girls. I have always found her humor to be exactly what I need to laugh… If she is cast in the re-makes of "Oh God," I'll be the first one in line to see it! I loved the orginial w/ the late George Burns and the late John Denver.. Yes, it was an original, but I think I could only accept a remake with Betty White and no-one else!! Such a cool idea!

    I pitched that idea to my husband about a month ago, only with Sandra Bullock in the John Denver role. If we're gonna go girl power, let's go all the way…
