First Trailer Released for Eugenio Derbez’s “Overboard” Remake

Yacht’s entertainment for Eugenio Derbez

The first trailer has been released for director Rob Greenberg’s Overboard, starring the 56-year-old Mexican actor.

Eugenio Derbez

It’s a remake of the Garry Marshall-directed comedy of the same name starring Goldie Hawn as a pampered heiress and Kurt Russell as a tormented carpenter.

Greenberg flipped the gender roles for the remake, with Derbez portraying a spoiled playboy and Anna Faris as a put-upon single mom hired to clean his yacht.

From MGM and Pantelion Films, Derbez plays Leonardo, a selfish gadabout who unjustly fires and refuses to pay Kate (Faris) for cleaning services rendered. When the guy from Mexico’s richest family gets wasted and falls out of his luxury yacht, he comes to on the Oregon coast with no recollection of who he is or how he got there. Kate shows up at the hospital and, eager for payback, convinces Leonardo that he is her husband and puts him to work — for the first time in his life. After a rough start, he eventually earns the respect of his new “family,” but his real kin are hot on their trail.

Eva Longoria and John Hannah also star in Overboard, which was written by Bob Fisher and Greenberg and Leslie Dixon.

MGM and Pantelion will replace the film on April 20.
