FBI Recruits J.Lo

FBI Recruits J.Lo
J.Lo as a G-lady? Actress-singer-fashion jawdropper Jennifer Lopez, 30, has scuttled her plans to portray Mexican artist Frida Kahlo in a feature film biography and is instead negotiating to star as an FBI agent for director Tony Scott in the crime thriller, 'Taking Lives,' reports Variety. Based on a Michael Pye novel, 'Lives' follows a female crime-fighter for the bureau who is hot on the trail of a 'Talented Mr. Ripley'-like killer who does away with strangers and then assumes their identities. Since the project was first announced a few years ago, director Scott ('Top Gun') has reportedly tried to woo Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett to take the starring role. As for what became of Lopez's long-simmering Kahlo project, which was to have been produced by Francis Ford Coppola, Variety says that a rival film starring Salma Hayek, Alfred Molina, Geoffrey Rush, Edward Norton and Ashley Judd scooped Lopez. Lopez's latest movie, 'Angel Eyes,' is due to open May 18.

Too bad, I was really looking forward to seeing her as Frida; she would have done a great job at it. :(

The reason is the project was at least 6 months behind Salma Hayek's version of the Kahlo story, which would likely be a longer delay with the impending writers and actor's strikes.
