The star is already working on two feature films that he will also star in: The action thriller “The Mother”, directed by Niki Caro (“Mulan”) and scheduled for release at the end of next year; and the film “The Cipher”, which will adapt the novel by Isabella Maldonado.
“I am excited to announce my partnership with Netflix. I think there is no better home than this content creation company, which looks to the future and seeks to challenge convention,” said the actress and singer in a statement.
The agreement, which will last for “several years,” includes the creation of fiction and documentary tapes, produced or starring López and directed by female talents, Netflix advanced.
“In every aspect of her career, Jennifer Lopez has been a stronghold in the world of entertainment,” added Scott Stuber, director of international movies at Netflix.
In addition, the Latin star has two other pending projects outside the agreement with Netflix.
On the one hand, he will premiere with Maluma the romantic comedy “Marry Me” on February 11, 2022, just to coincide with the Valentine’s Day, after experiencing countless postponements due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Set in New York and directed by Kat Coiro, director of series such as “Shameless” or “Modern Family,” the comedy also has a soundtrack performed by López and Maluma.
On the other hand, López will shoot “Shotgun Wedding”, another romantic comedy that he was going to star in with Armie Hammer, until the actor was fired from the project due to a series of sex scandals that spread on social networks.
