The stories of women feeling like fish in water in the world of organized crime are gaining more and more popularity. In September, "Hell's Kitchen" will be released, in which three representatives of the fair sex will take the reins of the mafia into their own hands, and only yesterday we reported that Jennifer Lawrence would become a mafia girl. Her namesake Jennifer Lopez is not far behind: the singer and actress will play the role of Colombian drug lord Griselda Blanco in The Godmother *.|
Griselda Blanco managed to survive in the cruel world of men, and not just survive, but to leave poverty behind and become one of the main figures in the world drug trade. Blanco was one of the first to make money from shipping white powder from Colombia to the United States. She made a huge fortune, was a key figure in the drug wars in Miami and very brutally cracked down on competitors.
Jennifer Lopez will not only star in the film, but also produce it. Also, insiders suspect that Lopez wants to make the tape his directorial debut, but this information has not yet been confirmed. The screenplay was written by Terence Winter ("The Wolf of Wall Street") and Regina Corrado ("Sons of Anarchy").
It is noteworthy that Lopez was going to play Blanco three years ago in the HBO project, but it did not work out with him, and now J.Lo has a new partner - STXfilms studio. Together they collaborated on two films - the comedy "Start Over" and the upcoming "Strippers".
