Check out the trailer for the remake of the 1987 comedy Overboard, starring Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez
A new trailer has been released for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and Pantelion Films’ remake of the 1987 romantic comedy Overboard, starring Anna Faris (Mom, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) and Eugenio Derbez (La Familia P. Luche). The film is directed by Rob Greenberg and written by Bob Fisher & Rob Greenberg and Leslie Dixon. Derbez, Benjamin Odell and Bob Fisher are producing, and Brendan Ferguson is executive producing. The cast also includes Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives) and John Hannah (Four Weddings and a Funeral). You can check out the new trailer in the player below.
In the original film, directed by Garry Marshall, Goldie Hawn played wealthy heiress Joanna Stayton who acts terribly towards carpenter Dean Proffitt (Kurt Russell) while he works on her and her husband’s (Edward Herrmann) yacht. When she falls overboard and gets amnesia, Dean brings her back to his house and convinces her that she’s his wife and the mother of his children. Though it begins as revenge, they eventually fall in love. This version of the film will feature a gender swap, with Derbez playing a playboy from a wealthy Mexican family who gets amnesia. Faris will play a single working mom who convinces them that they’re married.
In a splashy new twist, Overboard focuses on “Leonardo” (Eugenio Derbez), a selfish, spoiled, rich playboy from Mexico’s richest family and “Kate” (Anna Faris), a working class single mom of three hired to clean Leonardo’s luxury yacht. After unjustly firing Kate and refusing to pay her, Leonardo falls overboard when partying too hard and wakes up on the Oregon coast with amnesia. Kate shows up at the hospital and, to get payback, convinces Leonardo he is her husband and puts him to work – for the first time in his life. At first miserable and inept, Leonardo slowly settles in. Eventually he earns the rspect of his new “family” and co-workers. But, with Leonardo’s billionaire family hot on their trail and the possibility of his memory returning at any moment, will their new family last or will Leonardo finally put the clues together and leave them for good?
