Deadline reports that a live-action movie based on the computer game “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?” is in the works, and Jennifer Lopez may step into Carmen's globe-trotting shoes.
Sandra Bullock was once slated to don the big red hat on the big screen, but now that J. Lo’s signed on to produce, rumors are swirling that the diva will also take the lead as the elusive detective.
The plot will bring about a "cat-and-mouse" game between Carmen and her former ACME agency partner when it's suspected that Carmen has become "the world's greatest thief." The former partner takes on the role of the one who follows her clues to figure out her location. According to Deadline, they're aiming for a "National Treasure" meets "The Thomas Crown Affair" feel to the film.
In addition to the educational computer game, “Carmen Sandiego” also landed at PBS in the '90s as a geography-based game show for kids.
