The rom-com queen returns.
It’s what we’ve all been waiting for.
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.
