This April, [artist id=”508574″]Jennifer Lopez[/artist] will be heading back to the big screen in the romantic comedy “The Back-Up Plan,” her first in the genre since 2005’s “Monster-in-Law” and her first film in four years (since 2006’s “El Cantante”). After that film’s release on April 23, Lopez says she has no definite plans for her next project, but she is reportedly in talks to play the lead in a remake of “Overboard.”
“We’re looking at a couple of things,” she told MTV News while promoting “The Back-Up Plan” at ShoWest in Las Vegas. “I’m really trying to focus right now on finishing my record so that it can come out in the summer like we’re planning. So, that’s where my main focus is and then the movies come.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lopez would take over the role made famous by Goldie Hawn in “Overboard,” about an heiress who gets amnesia after falling off her yacht. The 1987 film, by “Valentine’s Day” director Garry Marshall, co-starred Hawn’s real-life partner, Kurt Russell. No actors have been named for re-creating Russell’s role as the carpenter who rescues the heiress.
In the meantime, Lopez has yet to announce which label will be releasing her upcoming album, Love?, since she recently split with Sony .
