It starred Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn and was about a rich, mean woman who falls. overboard. eh, while on a boat.

The Hollywood Reporter brings news that Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez are set to star in MGM's remake of the 1987 comedy Overboard.

In this version, Derbez will play a wealthy playboy who is duped into believing he is the husband of Faris' working-class single mother.

The classic 1987 film starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell is being given a modern day re-imagining by MGM and Pantelion Films and they've reportedly landed the flawless replacement for Goldie. Pantelion Films (Lionsgate and Grupo Televisa's joint company) and 3Pas Studios will produce.

Tallest Flag Installed in Punjab at Attari Wagah
India has made it clear that the flat was being installed 200 metres before the zero line and was not a violation in any manner. A private company will look after the flag maintenance; it has got this maintenance contract for 3 years.

Faris hasn't been shy about her love for the original film, and past year, she spoke to EW's Henry Goldblatt and Jessica Shaw about why it's her all-time favorite "sick day movie". Hawn played a selfish heiress who got amnesia when she fell off her yacht and Russell portrayed a carpenter who ultimately fell in love with her.

Rob Greenberg and Bob Fisher are attached to write and direct the film which is heading for a May start in Vancouver, Canada.

Faris currently stars opposite Allison Janney in the CBS sitcom "Mom" - now in its fourth season - and launched the comedy advice podcast "Anna Faris Is Unqualified" in 2015. "Anna and Eugenio are two of the most charismatic forces in comedy whose take on the material will modernise the story for a whole new generation of moviegoers".
