Jennifer Lopez in talks for "Overboard" remake

Jennifer Lopez is in negotiations to star in the remake of the 1987 Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn starrer romantic comedy "Overboard."

Leslie Dixon ("Mrs. Doubtfire," "Hairspray") wrote the script for the 1987 version, which was directed by Garry Marshall ("The Princess Diaries," "Valentine's Day").

The version's story is about a very rich, spoiled woman who falls off her yacht in the harbor of a small Oregon town, and taken in by a local carpenter whom she's previously maligned. When she wakes up with amnesia, he convinces her that she is his wife and the mother of his four boys.

Adam Cooper and Bill Collage are writing the current script, which Will Smith's Overbrook Entertainment will be producing for Columbia. Smith will produce with his Overbrook partner James Lassiter.
