Grab your life jackets and man the rowboats, because it looks like Jennifer Lopez is about to go 'Overboard.'

Yes, according to the Hollywood Reporter, J-Lo has signed on to Columbia's remake of the '80s comedy. The film, which focuses on "a snooty, spoiled woman who falls off her yacht and is taken to the hospital by a local, morally challenged carpenter," is being developed for the studio by Will Smth's Overbrook Entertainment.

This kind of fish into water story is a seemingly perfect fit for Lopez, who transformed herself from pop star to box office draw with similar projects like 'Maid in Manhattan' and 'The Wedding Planner,' both of which also feature J-Lo as a woman who falls for a man from a very different walk of life, ensuring that romantic and comedic sparks fly.
