Jennifer Lopez is arguably the queen of rom com films, alongside Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock perhaps, yet we've been deprived of a new one for five years since "What To Expect When You're Expecting" was released in 2012.
However, the wait is over! The ageless, tireless constantly-working star has announced that she has signed on to star in and produce "Second Act", a romantic comedy that will challenge the typical story arc for 'older' actresses as her character.
“There are so many things I love about this project and script," Lopez has said. “People try to put women to sleep at a certain age. ‘Second Act’ is a story that empowers the every woman to do more, to be more, and not limit their dreams. I am thrilled to partner with STX as they continue to create and empower the female audience.”
STXfilms have pitched the film as "Working Girl"-meets-"Maid In Manhattan" while "50 First Dates" director Peter Segal has signed on to direct.
Between "Maid In Manhattan," "The Wedding Planner" and (her best film) "Monster In Law", J-Lo has never put a foot wrong when it comes to romantic comedy films, so we already know this will be brilliant.
