Jennifer Lopez in Talks to Star in Overboard Remake

Jennifer Lopez is taking a break from music and focusing her attention on the big scene. J.Lo is reportedly in talks to star in a remake of Overboard, which had originally starred Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Adam Cooper and Bill Collage were hired to work on the current script, and J.Lo is the front runner to play the snobby socialite that falls overboard from her luxury yacht.

In the original movie, the socialite falls overboard, gets amnesia and wakes up in a hospital. A carpenter who worked for her before sees her on the news and takes advantage, telling her she's his wife, and so she goes to his rundown home to care for him and his many many sons.

Some movies such as Overboard should not be remade! The original was so awesome, it's going to be hard for the remake to live up to the standard. What do you guys think of J.Lo taking on the role? Would you watch the remake?
