Will Smith To Produce 'Overboard' remake with Jennifer Lopez


Recommended Posts

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Jennifer Lopez is in talks to star in the remake of the romantic comedy "Overboard."

The 1987 movie, which starred Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn and was directed by Garry Marshall, centered on a snooty, spoiled woman who falls off her yacht and is taken to the hospital by a local, morally challenged carpenter. When she wakes up with amnesia, he convinces her she is his wife, thereby getting a free housekeeper for his four boys.

Adam Cooper and Bill Collage worked on the current script, as did Leslie Dixon.

Will Smith is producing the Columbia Pictures project with his Overbrook Entertainment partner James Lassiter.

Lopez, who hasn't appeared in a movie since 2006's "El Cantante," next stars in the romantic comedy "The Back-up Plan," which opens April 23.

I'm looking forward to this. Fresh Prince and Jennifer Lopez were both at great heights in their careers for the late 90's and early 2000's. I've been wanting them to work together ever since then. I'd much rather have a song by them or a movie featuring the both of them, but this will do for now. I think it'll be a good project for the both of them.
