Jennifer Lopez in Talks to Star in Overboard Movie Remake 2010-03-19 09:30:54

Jennifer Lopez to Get Tossed Overboard

Heaven help us: the '80s classic Overboard is being remade. What's more, there's already casting news: Jennifer Lopez is in talks to star.

The original is one of my all-time faves — how can you not love a snotty Goldie Hawn losing her identity from a toss off the side of a yacht and then falling for the carpenter (Kurt Russell) who's duping her?

I'm not exactly psyched to see them overhauling something that I think needs no improvement, but in remake-happy Hollywood, it's par for the course. However, Jennifer Lopez can easily go from spoiled to no-frills, so she's not the worst choice if a remake is happening. But I'm ready to hear from you guys — is this news good or bad?

I'm disgusted with this news. I haven't been this disgusted since they announced the Footloose remake. Classics are classics for a reason, it's because they're brilliant!! This will suck. I can definitively state that because J Lo sucks in everything.

Nooo! In agreement with most here. I *loved* the original. Don't mess with it, Hollywood, we beg of you!!

there are some 80s movies that i could forgive a remake since the production value can be so poor, in my mind, it detracts from the storytelling, but Overboard is decidedly not one of those movies. Lost Boys, however, could stand some effects tweaking..

Jennifer Lopez? Weirdest casting decision.

Why mess with perfection? I have to agree with Videogum's comment: "The problem is, just as one does not simply drive into Mordor, one does not simply remake Overboard with Jennifer Lopez." They'd better come up with something new and updated. I just don't see the putt putt plotline flying with today's youth.

I agree with everyone here! The original is one of my favorite all time movies. If I'm searching for something to watch and its on, I will watch it!!! JLO? NoGO! I think Kate Hudsen would be fabulous, maybe Goldie could play her Mother? that would be cool...but who would play Kurt's role? Mmmmm

How do you beat the chemistry from the original? This is another idea that may have sounded good on paper, but com'on, leave it alone ...

AnimatedPunk - That would be awesome if Kate Hudson did the remake! LOL. But yeah, definitely doesn't need to be remade... Leave it alone...

I wish Kate Hudson was doing the remake ;) I love the original and I don't think Jennifer Lopez is right for the role.
