Jennifer Lopez is in talks to star in two feature films: the actress-performer is in talks to play the female lead in Parker starring opposite Jason Statham, as well as a supporting role in What to Expect When You're Expecting.
Directed by Taylor Hackford, action film Parker is an adaptation of the Donald E. Westlake mystery novel series. In Parker, Jason Statham will play the title character, Parker, a thief who follows a strict moral code, but a hard guy who's willing to kill if crossed. Jennifer Lopez would play the female lead, a character named Leslie, who gets involved with Parker as he executes a heist.
Production on Parker begins in August.
Lionsgate's What to Expect When You're Expecting is directed by Kirk Jones and is based on the bestselling how-to guide to preparing for childbirth. Cameron Diaz and Matthew Morrison star. Jennifer Lopez is in discussions for the supporting role of Holly.
No production date has been set.
