Jennifer Lopez is returning to her romantic-comedy roots for STX. The singer and actress will star in and produce a new rom-com, titled “Second Act”, which follows a big box-store employee who, after reinventing herself, gets the chance to prove to Madison Avenue that street smarts are as valuable as a college degree. The project is pitched as Working Girl meets Maid in Manhattan. Lopez states about the project,
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.
Lopez, who is working to release a Spanish-language album, has most recently been seen on the small screen in her NBC series Shades of Blue and the competition show World of Dance. Her feature roles include the mystery thriller “Boy Next Door” and the DreamWorks Animation’s “Home.”
