Overboard is a new spin on the 1987 comedy of the same name which starred Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. This time around, the movie will be toplined by Anna Faris (Mom, Scary Movie) and Eugenio Derbez (La familia P. Luche).
Role reversal remakes seem to be a popular trend of late, and this will be case with Overboard as well. In the original, Goldie Hawn played Joanna, an heiress who gets amnesia after falling off her yacht. Kurt Russell played a carpenter who once worked for her. He convinces Joanna that she is his wife. This time around it will be Eugenio’s character who comes from a rich family. He falls overboard from a yacht and is convinced by Anna’s character that he is her husband.
Thank you @lemon_buzz for breaking the news that Overboard would be coming to Vancouver to film!
Overboard will continue filming in Vancouver and British Columbia until July 14th.
