Like it or not, Hollywood's latest trend of gender swapped remakes is just beginning to set sail!
It's been reported that Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez will star in the re-imagining of the classic comedy Overboard!
The original 1987 film starred Goldie Hawn as a selfish heiress who gets temporary amnesia and Kurt Russell as the working-class guy who tricks her into thinking they're married.
But the tides will be turning MGM's upcoming remake!
Derbez will be playing a spoiled playboy from one of Mexico's wealthiest families who falls off his yacht, and is tricked by a single, working class mom (Faris) that he's her husband.
It took long enough for Hollywood to realize that female characters can be just as morally bankrupt as the guys!
But if anyone can be hilarious and charming in a role like this, it's the Mom star.
And with her Mexican playboy counterpart being played by one of the biggest Mexican actors in the world, this remake will definitely be making a huge splash!
Are YOU excited for the Overboard remake, or is Hollywood going, well… you know?
