It’s been 30 years since Garry Marshall’s comedy Overboard, starring husband & wife team Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, first hit cinemas and won the affections of many a person. The comedy favourite is considered a classic in many circles. The film, which has been previously set up for a remake starring none other than Jennifer Lopez which never came to fruition, is moving one step closer to a reboot reality with the news that Anna Faris (The House Bunny, Mom) and Eugenio Derbez have been cast to lead it.

 

Eugenio Derbez

This new version of the film will reverse the roles whereby Faris will play the swindling seadog and Derbez the anmesiac millionaire.
