Jennifer Lopez in Talks to Star in ‘Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego’ Live Action Film!
Deadline is reporting that American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez and Walden Media are currently developing a live action adaptation of the popular Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego cartoon and game show. While it’s not 100% if she’ll star as the titular character, she will more than likely have a hand in producing the project.
Just another gig to add to her insane large resume!
Jen has a couple of films coming out in 2012, such as the star-studded What to Expect When You’re Expecting and Parker with Jason Statham. Also, she is currently scouting talent for a show called Que Viva, and American Idol-eqsue talent search.
“The hope is to turn the property into National Treasure meets The Thomas Crown Affair. The logline: when the ACME agency’s greatest detective Carmen Sandiego becomes the world’s greatest thief, it’s up to her former partner to follow her clues and track her down. Their cat and mouse game leads the partner to confront a greater mystery: is Carmen really a thief or a hero? The property originated as an educational computer game before it was turned into an animated TV series.”
