Is Hollywood making too many remakes and not enough original movies?
I've just seen that Overboard, the 80s movie with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell is to be remade with Jennifer Lopez muted for the main role.
Overboard is one of the those films that's meant for a rainy Saturday afternoon and I'm not sure that a remake will do it any justice or be improved. Remakes don't necessary mean a success at the box office, I've been disappointed by the Alfie and The Italian Job remakes (to name a few) and would like to see studios spending money on original and innovative movies/stories like Avatar and The Lovely Bones. What do you think?
Check out the original movie trailer.
