Anna Faris Got Goldie Hawn And Kurt Russell's Blessing For The 'Overboard' Remake
Last year, it was announced that the remake of the popular comedy Overboard (1987) will feature the talents of Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez.
"Tomémonos una foto así como que no nos damos cuenta"; Anna Faris y yo estamos muy emocionados porque el estreno de #HombreAlAgua es este próximo 4 de Mayo en USA ???????? y 10 de mayo en ???????? / Great news! @annafaris and I are very excited because @overboardmovie will be released in US ???????? theaters on May 4th.
The plot of the upcoming remake is slightly different. Faris will play a regular hard-working mom, who meets spoiled millionaire played by Derbez. In the original film, the roles were reversed, Goldie Hawn starred as a rich amnesia-struck woman, who was picked up by Kurt Russell's run-of-the-mill father of four.
Original actors' thoughts on the remake
The 1987 version of the film is very special to Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. It was the third movie that brought the two actors together, but it was the one they starred in while being in love.
The celebrity couple has been together since 1983, so the filming of Overboard (1987) fell on the most romantic time of their lives.
It really shows on the screen, that the chemistry between Kurt and Goldie was off the charts. This is one of the reasons why the film had stood the test of time and was picked up for a remake.
Anna Faris was a perfect choice for the new film. She's a well-known comedian, and audiences love her for her relatable and, at times, simple-minded characters.
But how do Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell feel about the Hollywood's new take on their classic romantic comedy?

According to Faris, Goldie and Kurt are on board. The couple took Anna out to dinner to discuss the remake, and by the end, they gave their approval.
