Jennifer Lopez: Woman 'Overboard'!

Jennifer Lopez is in talks to star in a remake of the 1987 romantic comedy Overboard!

The original film, which starred Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, told the story of a spoiled woman who falls off her yacht and is taken to the hospital by a “morally challenged” carpenter, according to THR.

When the woman wakes up with amnesia, the carpenter convinces her that she is his wife so that he can have a free housekeeper for his four sons!

Next up for J. Lo is the release of The Back-Up Plan on April 23 – she introduced the film at Las Vegas’ ShoWest yesterday! Check out pics from the event here.

  • janelle

    No more crappy remakes, please.

  • Rhonda

    Why? that is the stupidest thing I’ve heard out of Hollywood since Hill Duff to remake Bonnie and Clyde.

    she can’t compete with Goldie in that film, why bother trying!

  • Avid Fan

    Why would anyone cast this washed up cow to be in any film let alone another unwanted remake to boot?

  • wow

    please tell me this is not true…you can’t remake goldie in that film

  • tasha

    Why even waist their time. Overboard is a classic they need to leave it alone.

  • d33 c33

    It will only work if Ben Afflect plays the hillybilly who fools her.

  • [marie]

    For the love of all that is good and cuddly… J-LO Please don’t do a remake of ‘Overboard’..

    I’m 24, and I loved watching the re-runs of that movie as a kid..

    Please… I’m begging you J-LO no more movies, especially not “Overboard” Only Kurt and Goldie could do it justice..

    I’m in tears right now…

  • getJLOST

    J-Pig’s ego is so out of control, she thinks she remake a classic Goldie Hawn role? Oh please, sit down. J-No Talent couldn’t act her way out of a paper bag. She is the laughing stock of the entertainment industry. She can’t sing either, and when she dances, she falls down. Total loser. Its so over for her, why won’t anyone tell her?

  • dundies

    um i so grew up on that movie. so no.. NEXT

  • oh lord

    ew f no. a latino goldie hawn? wtf?

  • lexy

    Please she’s no Goldie Hawn!! She’ll never be. Let her go back to doing what she does best…trying to hawk her perfume or clothing or whatever else she can make money off of.

  • ad

    Jennifer, Pleeeeeease go away. thanks!

  • ad

    u can spend ur days counting your money. we’ve had enough.

  • What a Jolly Folly

    Oh my god. Way to ruin this. JLo in Overboard. Hahaha. Isn’t she a bit old to be playing the goldie hawn part?

  • mikee25

    All the people calling Jlo a cow are so ignorant!! How old are you??? I teach middle school children and all the horrible, rude, and ignorant people on here act worst than them!!! Stop being so hateful and ignorant. If you don’t like someone, thats fine but don’t be so ignorant as to spread hate on line!!!

  • ugggggg!!!

    Jennifer Lopes and Jennifer Aniston both need to drop off the face of the earth! They are rich and can’t spend all their money in their lifetime. Neither of them can act and their movies SUCK! ! Old, overated ass farts!

    No remake of Overboard it is a classic! Geez, is there anyone left in HW with an original thought.

  • http://seriouslyhappytoo.com happy girl

    Jen don’t do it! The first one was one of the worst flops in Hollywood. Don’t do it Jen!

  • Diana

    What’s the point of remaking a movie that was already crappy the first time around?

    Jennifer dear, your late ’90′s – early ’00′s heyday is long gone and you should be happy with all the money you made for your limited talent. Now you just need to sit down at home and concentrate on your children.

  • lexy

    Excuse me but Aniston is actually talented. She’s not some untalented media wh0re trying to hang on to her 15 min – which in J-Lo’s case has been over LONG ago. I’m sure Aniston would LOVE for the paps to leave her alone and stop bugging her about her love life and personal business. Whereas Lopez, needs it, since she’s got no talent! If she’s too busy counting her money, let her count Marc’s though he probably pays a pretty penny in child support and alimony to the other women in his life. But still I imagine he’s got a few bucks she can count.

  • ugggggg!!!

    Aniston talent is the paps, gossip magazines and her divorce. She made a career out of being looked upon as the jilted spouse. She is not funny and was always the weakest link on Friends. She hit bigger than her co-star’s because of hair, hard nips, and marrying an A-list celebrity. Her post marriage has kept her name alive because her ex moved on to the hottess actress in HW before she found a new squeeze and she played her situation for the popularity vote amongst the mini-van and jilted woman population. Nothing more to her than that. Oh, yeah and Aniston and huvanes push to make you think her body is something out of the ordinary, pfff please.

  • gaugin

    Overboard was one of the worst movies ever. A remake with jho will make it the worst. Or maybe tied with that horrible movie she made with Ben Affleck. This woman really has no talent, have never understood why she’s a “star”, either in music or movies.

  • ally

    she is so irrelevant it’s ridiculous.

  • Rhonda

    Sounds like Hollywood is all out of ideas and cartoon characters.

  • Ilia

    Goldie is half naked in that movie especially in the opening segments, with that semi-thing she is wearing. How could this misshaped woman pull off that outfit? I don’t get it…

  • Ilia

    correction: “… semi-thong …”

  • john

    I THINK IT A GREAT IDEA.J.LO IS PERFECT FOR THE PART. ALL U GUYS CAN SUCK IT. LOVE U J.LO

  • J

    U ROCK JENNIFER

  • Cee Cee

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Not that no talent hag remaking a classic! She is like 41 years old! Too old and stupid to play the role.

  • Avid Fan

    @mikee25: Why don’t you go choke on it!

  • http://nineten80snore.com nineteen80snore
