Jennifer Lopez and her butt to star in Overboard remake

OVERBOARD, one of those perennial 1980s comedies, is one I've also never seen. But for whatever reason, every household in my family had it in their VHS cabinets. And whenever I saw Kurt Russell's mug, I always wondered, "Why isn't this BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA?! Where is BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA?! I WANNA WATCH BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA AGAIN!"

Sadly, I still react this way.

All that said, I can't tell you if a proposed remake of the Kurt Russell/Goldie Hawn boat comedy is a good thing or some sort of travesty to throw your arms up at. According to THR, the original film directed by Garry Marshall, "centered on a snooty, spoiled woman who falls off her yacht and is taken to the hospital by a local, morally challenged carpenter. When she wakes up with amnesia, he convinces her she is his wife, thereby getting a free housekeeper for his four boys."

Jennifer Lopez and her ample posterior are in talks to fill the Goldie Hawn role. No word on who the dude would be, but I'll leave that bit of casting speculation up to you guys.

Lopez can next be seen in the fairly atrocious-looking THE BACK-UP PLAN on April 16th.
Extra Tidbit: You could rest a pitcher of beer on that butt.
