American actress, singer, record producer, dancer, television personality, fashion designer and television producer Jennifer Lynn Lopez resurrected her career in the last year with a new album, being a judge on American Idol and a ton of endorsement deals. Now it has been reported that the entertainer is in talks to star in two new films. 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. The picture was acquired for U.S. distribution by Film District CEO Peter Schlessel and her co-star Statham will play Parker, a thief who follows a strict moral code,
but a hard guy who's willing to kill if crossed. The “On The Floor” hitmaker is in discussions for the supporting role of Holly in the film “What To Expect When You're Expecting,” the Kirk Jones-directed Lionsgate film that is based on the bestselling how-to guide to preparing for childbirth. The film stars Cameron Diaz and Matthew Morrison. Both films are still in the discussion stage but it’s evident that Lopez’s stock has gone up. She will also launch a Latin talent show with husband Marc Anthony in 2012.Once the deals are done, Lopez will film both Parker and What to Expect during her summer hiatus from Idol. Her big decision now... Whether to return to the show that revitalized her career, or take a chance and make her movie career her top priority.
