Anna Faris will jump into Overboard the role Goldie Hawn made famous. The Mom actress will join Eugenio Derbez for the MGM remake of the 80’s classic that also starred Kurt Russell. But there will be a slight twist—it is Derbez who will play wealthy and spoiled playboy who falls off a yacht and gets amnesia while Faris will play a single mom who convinces him they are married.
MGM Motion Picture Group President Jonathan Glickman praised the new casting in a statement. “The original Overboard was beloved and the only way to bring it back is to reinvent the story in a whole new way. Anna and Eugenio are two of the most charismatic forces in comedy whose take on the material will modernize the story for a whole new generation of moviegoers.”
