Will Smith To Produce “Overboard” Remake Starring Jennifer Lopez

19 March 2010 6:34 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Big Willie Smith is on that remake tip again… we already know about the upcoming Karate Kid which stars his son, Jaden; this time, it’s a remake of the 1987 romantic comedy, Overboard, which starred Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn and was directed by Garry Marshall.

The 1987 movie centered on a snooty, spoiled woman (Hawn) who falls off her yacht and is taken to the hospital by a local, morally challenged carpenter (Russell). When she wakes up with amnesia, he convinces her she is his wife, thereby getting a free housekeeper for his four boys. You can probably figure out what happens next, even if you’ve never seen the original.

The remake will star Jennifer Lopez in the Goldie Hawn role. Although, the man who will star opposite Lopez, in the Kurt Russell role is unknown. Is Will going to be that guy? I’m guessing not. I think »
