    Default Jennifer Lopez In Talks To Star In Two Hollywood Movies


     
    Tuesday June 21, 2011 

    EXCLUSIVE: There has been much speculation over whether Jennifer Lopez will return for another season as judge on American Idol. Adding to the intrigue: she is in talks to star in not one, but two feature films. I'm told that Lopez is in discussions to play the female lead opposite Jason Statham in Parker, the Taylor Hackford-directed action film adaptation of the Donald Westlake mystery novel series.

    Deadline revealed yesterday that the picture was acquired for U.S. distribution by FilmDistrict CEO Peter Schlessel. Statham will play Parker, a thief who follows a strict moral code, but a hard guy who's willing to kill if crossed. That character was previously played by Mel Gibson in Payback and Lee Marvin in Point Blank. The hope is to hatch an action franchise. John J. McLaughlin wrote the script and Steve Chasman is producing with Kimmel, Hackford, Les Alexander and Jonathan Mitchell. Lopez plays the female lead, a character named Leslie, who gets involved with Parker as he executes a heist.

    The film is being financed by Incentive Filmed Entertainment and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, and Sierra/Affinity's Nick Meyer brokered that distribution deal and sold most worldwide territories at last month's Cannes Film Festival. Production on the film begins in August.

    At the same time, Lopez is also circling What To Expect When You're Expecting, the Kirk Jones-directed Lionsgate film based on the bestselling how-to guide to preparing for childbirth. Cameron Diaz and Matthew Morrison star. Lopez is in discussions for the supporting role of Holly in that film. Neither deal is closed, but talks are underway. Clearly, Lopez is in demand again and that stint on American Idol certainly helped. Lopez last starred in The Back-Up Plan. UTA reps Lopez.

    I guess they want their movies to fail.

    I don't think it would be wise for her to give up AI.

    Oh come on! Its bad enough she came back on AI then rammed a million commercials down everyones throats. Then came the horrible music and inevitable CD. I was hoping the pain was over but now shes really going to try to make movies again? When will she just pack it up and go away?

    I like her in RomComs but can't even entertain the thought of her in an action film.

    She was actually pretty good a million years ago in Out of Sight where she kicked Clooney's ass if I recall. Course that was before she got the insufferable diva rep and it wasn't completely an action film, but you get the idea.

    ^^ I must be the only person who thought that movie sucked. Everyone I know loved it.

    Out of Sight was the worst acting performance I have ever seen. She had the same facial expression in every scene.

    I liked Out Of Sight. Kind of liked Enough too until I seriously sat down and thought it over. No, she was a bad choice for that role.
