Anna Faris will star in a remake of the 1987 romantic comedy “Overboard”, where a carpenter makes a mean rich lady with amnesia think she’s his wife. The original starred Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.
Kurt played a down-on-his luck carpenter who gets stiffed on a job by Goldie, who’s a spoiled, filthy rich you-know-what.
When Goldie falls off her yacht and gets amnesia, her A-hole husband uses the opportunity to run out on her. So Kurt fakes some paperwork and poses as her husband.
He takes her home to his SHACK, where he makes her do chores and take care of his feral kids. Hilarity ensues . . . as does an eventual love connection. Personal opinion: It’s definitely one of the best 80’s movies out there.
In the remake, the genders are switched. Anna will play a working class single mom, while a guy you’ve never heard of named Eugenio Derbez plays a wealthy Mexican playboy she plays that trick on.
