The plot may be ridiculous, but Overboard is a gem of a movie from the 80s that we won't soon forget. I mean, even if we tried to, it would be impossible, because the fun film is getting the remake treatment.
Earlier this year, it was announced that 1987 movie, which starred Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, will be returning to the silver screen. The original story follows Kurt, a carpenter who takes in Hawn, a spoiled heiress who got amnesia after falling off her yacht, and convinces her that she was his wife. She even starts to help raise his kids, and of course, they eventually fall in love.
As for the remake, it will stay true to the amnesia story line, but there will be other major changes. For instance, it will be the man who forgets his past, not the woman.
Anna Faris, best known for her role in the Scary Movie franchise, and Eugenio Derbrez have signed on for the lead roles. Faris will play a working-class single mom, Kate, while Derbrez will portray Leonardo, a billionaire with amnesia. Other cast members include Eva Longoria, John Hannah, Emily Maddison, John Segarra, and Swoozie Kurtz.
Of course, amidst all the excitement we were a little apprehensive about the remake, but the first official photo from the movie has been released, and we're slowly warming up to the idea.
