Actress Eva Longoria has joined Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez in Bob Fisher and Rob Greenberg's romantic comedy Overboard.

The MGM and Pantelion Films project is a re-imaging to the 1980s movie that starred Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, reported Deadline.

The role-reversal adaption follows a spoiled playboy (Derbez) from one of Mexico's wealthiest families who falls overboard off his yacht and develops amnesia only to be convinced by Kate (Faris), a single, working class mom that he is her husband.

Longoria will play Theresa, Kate's employer at the pizza restaurant as well as her closest family friend and trusted confidant.

Fisher is producing with Ben Odell and Derbez via their 3Pas Studios banner.
