The first trailer for Anna Faris’s gender-swapping production of Overboard has been released.
The movie is a re-boot of the 1987 original of the same name starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.
The re-boot sees Faris play overworked and badly treated professional carpet cleaner Kate opposite Eugenio Derbez’s Leonardo, a rude and privileged millionaire.
After throwing her cleaning equipment overboard, the pair have an argument and Faris’s character finds herself in debt to the cleaning company.
When Leonardo is later found washed up on a beach and suffering from amnesia, Kate’s friend Theresa (Eva Longoria) suggests she take “poetic” revenge by collecting him from hospital and pretending to be his wife.
Watch the full trailer below:
The film is expected to be released next April.
Back in October, Faris spoke about the sexual harassment she had experienced in the movie industry on her ‘Unqualified’ podcast.
“I was doing a scene where I was on a ladder and I was supposed to be taking books off of a shelf, and he slapped my ass in front of the crew so hard, and all I could do was giggle,” she recalled.
Faris also starred in The Emoji Movie, released earlier this year.
