In an effort to have more female-driven films STXfilms has recruited Jennifer Lopez to star and produce a new romantic comedy. The movie will be called “Second Act,” where Lopez will play a woman who decides to reinvent herself through street smarts. Think “Working Girl” and “Maid in Manhattan.”
“Second Act” script was written by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Justin Zackham. The idea was later developed by Lopez and STXfilms. Jennifer expressed her excitement for the project to Variety.
“There are so many things I love about this project and script. 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.”
Lopez is no stranger to romantic comedies so we are sure that this will be a possible hit at the box office. There is no release date for “Second Act” yet, but more details are sure to come.
