Jennifer Lopez to star in Overboard remake
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Jennifer Lopez, who was last relevant in 2002, is giving audiences another reason to hate her as she has agreed to star in a planned remake of the 1987 hit comedy OVERBOARD. The original starred Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn and was directed by Garry Marshall is still a fan favorite with a lot of people. Lopez will obviously be taking over Hawn’s role, but the more important role is that of Kurt Russell, whose Dean Proffitt character was the source of most of the laughs from the original.
For those that don’t know, OVERBOARD is about a spoiled rich woman that falls off her yacht and gets a case of amnesia. When she awakens, the greasy carpenter that took her to the hospital convinces her she is his housekeeper. J-Lo can next be seen in THE BACK-UP PLAN.
