Now We Know When The Overboard Remake Is Happening, And We Still Don't Know If We're Ready


The movie Overboard is probably one of the greatest 80s movies out there. Sure, the plot is perhaps a little bit ridiculous, but that can be forgiven because it's super fun to watch.


The movie was made in 1987 and starred Goldie Hawn as a woman who was dealing with amnesia after falling off her yacht.


She was left behind by her husband, and then essentially kidnapped by Kurt Russell who pretended she was his wife.


He makes her help raise his children even though he has no idea whether or not she has ever even been around kids.


I mean, obviously it turns out just fine because it's a movie and of course they need to fall in love.


The fact of the matter is, they are making a reboot of it. Even though none of us asked for this, Hollywood has decided that an Overboard remake is a great idea.

We have known for a while who was starring in it, but now we know when to expect it...

The movie will actually be switching the roles this time. Instead of having the woman be the one who forgets her past and gets her life changed, it will be the man.


The stars of this new reboot are Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbriz. Faris will play a working-class single mom and then Derbrez will play a billionaire who gets amnesia.


The comedy was announced a few months ago, but they didn't have a release date until now. We can expect this comedy-remake on April 20th, 2018.


Some of the other cast members include:

Eva Longoria


Emily Maddison

John Hannah

Jesse Grant / Wire Image

Josh Segarra

And Swoosie Kurtz
