Jennifer Lopez To Portray Drug Lord Griselda Blanco In Upcoming HBO Movie

Jennifer Lopez will portray drug lord Griselda Blanco in a film currently in development at HBO.

The 47-year-old will also executive produce the project, and according to Deadline.com:

[The film] focuses on the rise and fall of Griselda Blanco (Lopez), the drug lord known as “The Cocaine Godmother” who revolutionized the U.S. drug trade during the 1970s and 1980s and became the most powerful female cartel member of all time.

Honestly, when I think of a movie about Griselda, I see Salma Hayek playing the role. But J.Lo’s production company is behind the project, so I get it. Whether or not she has the acting chops to pull it off remains to be seen.
