Not only is Jennifer Lopez continuing her pursuit of new romantic comedies, but it appears she's going to make her first real studio movie in 7 years.
Lopez has worked exclusively with mini-majors such as The Weinstein Company Miramax and New Line since she starred in one of the biggest bombs of all time, 2003's "Gigli" for Columbia Pictures. Her "comeback" romantic comedy, "The Back-Up Plan" is for startup CBS Films (and potentially their first hit).
Now, Lopez is in talks to star in a remake of the Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell 1987 comedy "Overboard" for Columbia Pictures. The original flick found Hawn playing a spoiled, rich woman who suffers amnesia when she falls off her yacht. After a carpenter takes her to the hospital he convinces her she's actually his wife which allows someone else to take care of his freewheeling four young boys.
Will Smith's Overbrook productions is behind the remake, but no director is attached as of yet.
