Get more details on Anna Faris and who will take on the Kurt Russell role…
If you recall, Goldie and her longtime partner Kurt Russell starred in the 1987 comedy. Unfortunately that is not happening Faris costar will be Eugenio Derbez (Speedy Gonzales, How to Be a Latin Lover) have signed on board to take on the Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell’s roles from the Garry Marshall directed film.
Directed and written by Rob Greenberg and Bob Fisher, is scheduled to begin filming in May (17) in Vancouver, Canada.
The original film starred Hawn as a spoiled woman who falls overboard on a yacht and wakes up in hospital with amnesia. A carpenter (Russell) convinces her that she’s his wife and the mother of his kids.
In the remake, the roles will be reversed and Derbez will portray a playboy from a wealthy Mexican family who falls overboard from his yacht and wakes up believing he is married to single mother Faris.
Derbez will also serve as a producer on the project.
The remake has been in the works for some time, originally Will Smith and Jennifer Lopez were initially linked to the reboot, but that obviously fell apart.
