Jennifer Lopez to play Carmen Sandiego?

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.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks China Hood

    She's ruined most of her movies!! The only one I can stand to watch is Enough.... but cause she gets hit a couple of times!! And a favorite is Jersey Girl with Ben, cause she dies right away.

    Funny...My wife and I were talkin about the good ole Carmen San Diego show/game...Where in the SAN DIEGO?? That theme song can't be forgotten...J.LO looks good and for having twins, is still looking nice...But money can whip anyone back to shape...However, I heard that she is as friendly as many ppl make her out to be...Didn't she have some show looking for an assistant??

  6. way to go Jennifer Lopez, you are the best

    I am glad Jennifer Lopez is going to do this movie, she is the best Latina actress in Hollywood, and she is down to earth lady and never forgot her roots. There is not more beautiful lady in Hollywood as Jennifer Lopez.

    Why don't they give the part to an unknown latino actress?? There aren't that many latino actresses to begin with so why not give someone a break. Anyone but Jennifer!!

    • Jennifer Lopez is the best choice

      The rest of the Latino actress in Hollywood either do not speak English very well such as Salma Hayat or are illegally working here. Jennifer Lopez is the best choice for this movie and any other movie.

    And if you shoot them in the head, I hear they go right down. Zombies, not old people. They are almost just alike though. If ever attacked by a pack of them, remember to go for the head.

    Plus she is at least 40. Old people like her walk real slow and cant hide good. They shuffle along like zombies.
