Jennifer Lopez is in negotiations to star in a remake of Overboard, the 1987 romantic comedy that starred Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Overbrook is producing the comedy for Columbia.
The story centers on a snooty, spoiled woman who falls off her yacht and is taken to the hospital by a local, morally challenged carpenter. When she wakes up with amnesia, he convinces her she is his wife, thereby getting a free housekeeper for his four boys.
Adam Cooper and Bill Collage worked on the current script, as did Leslie Dixon.
Will Smith is producing with Overbrook partner James Lassiter.
No production date has been set.
