Jennifer Lopez will continue to walk the line between right and wrong, this time for HBO.
The superstar will executive produce and star in an untitled movie for the home of Game of Thrones, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film will be a biopic about Griselda Blanco, the most notorious female cartel leader in the history of the drug trade. Lopez will chew on the meaty role of Blanco in what could be her most challenging role yet. Certainly more than Gigli.
"I've been fascinated by the life of this corrupt and complicated woman for many years," Lopez told THR. "The idea of teaming with HBO felt like the perfect fit for finally bringing Griselda's story to life."
We already know how the story ends, too. Blanco was killed in Colombia in 2012, but not before she earned the nickname "The Cocaine Godmother" for her work smuggling 300 kilos of the white stuff into the United States per month during the height of her reign. She's also got a bit of black widow in her, as she reportedly killed her first two husbands. Okay, JLo sounds perfect for the role.
Lopez has come a long way from her days as a Fly Girl on In Living Color, and impressed critics with her performance as an amoral cop in NBC's Shades of Blue. That series will be back for a second season, which is yet to be scheduled.
