Jennifer, who is also co-producing the flick for the streaming giant, plays an assassin who comes out of hiding in order to protect her daughter who she gave up years before.

Misha Green is in charge of the script, with edits from Andrea Berloff. The film is said to be in the vein of Luc Besson’s 1994 classic ‘The Professional’.

Meanwhile, the ‘In The Morning’ singer is also set to star in and produce Netflix’s adaptation of ‘The Cipher’.

Jennifer – who previously played Detective Harlee Santos in the TV series ‘Shades of Blue’ – will portray FBI agent Nina Guerrera in the movie based on Isabella Malondo’s best-selling novel.

Nina finds herself drawn into a serial killer’s case after he strategically posts complex codes and riddles online. The codes correspond to recent murders, designed to lure her into a cat-and-mouse chase.

The ’Second Act’ star has a number of other films on the way, including ‘Marry Me’ and ‘The Godmother’.

In the former film, the ‘On The Floor’ hitmaker will couple up with Owen Wilson.

Jennifer will play a pop star who marries a stranger (Owen) after finding out her fiancé has cheated on her.

The pair meet after the singer holds a ‘marry me’ sign at one of her concerts.

The forthcoming flick has been compared to rom-com classics ‘Notting Hill’ and ‘The Proposal’.

It’s not the first time Jennifer and Owen, also 51, have starred alongside each other. The pair appeared in the 1997 horror ‘Anaconda’ together, along with the likes of Ice Cube and Jon Voight.

Jennifer is also producing ‘Marry Me’ alongside Elaine Goldsmith Thomas and Benny Media. The trio also worked on 2018’s ‘Second Act’.

J-Lo who recently celebrated 20 years of her hit song ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing’ has been on a roll these past two years. She performed at the Biden Harris inauguration in January 2021, launched her beauty brand in January 2021, received a PEOPLE’s choice Icon Award in late 2020, performed at the Superbowl in 2020 alongside fellow Latino star Shakira and the movie ‘Hustlers’ was critically acclaimed.
