Jennifer Lopez to Play a MILF in Upcoming Film ‘The Boy Next Door’

Lopez

It’s been a wild ride for Jennifer Lopez but the singer and American Idol judge is trying to stick around in acting and has taken the lead role in one of her most edgiest roles yet. According to Vulture, Lopez is set to play a recently separated mother who begins an affair with a teenage neighbor boy.

I’ve seen this movie before — but where?

Per Vulture:

Lopez will take the lead in The Boy Next Door. The 44-year-old will play a newly separated mother who begins an affair with a teenage neighbor and runs into trouble when she tries to break it off.

Rob Cohen, best remembered for directing the Vin Diesel action flick xXx is in talks to direct the film which has a yet to be determined release date.

Lopez is currently in the process of reviving her career the way she wants to and may be leaning towards taking more serious roles once again. Remember, before her days of being a Maid in Manhattan, Jenny from the Block was sexing things up in Steven Soderbergh’s brilliant 1998 crime film Out of Sight as well as the 2002 thriller Enough.

She’s always been a talent in both the movie and music world, and the more she’s tapped into her serious side, the better off her career will be at this stage.
