By now, we're pretty used to seeing Jennifer Lopez achieve greatness. As we've come to learn after decades of idolising her, she's the kind of woman who sets goals and then exceeds them. Super Bowl performance, anyone? So, naturally, we knew that her path to world domination would be coming to fruition any second now. What we didn't necessarily expect was that the icing on the J.Lo cake would be in the world of film and entertainment. A welcome surprise, get ready to see a new string of Jennifer Lopez productions on your screen, because Jenny from the block has officially signed a multi-year deal with Netflix.
Her production company, Nuyorican Production; which is the banner she produced Hustlers under, has just confirmed its partnership with the streaming platform. As reported by Variety, the two companies will work together to uplift "diverse female actors, writers and filmmakers" across a series of film and television content both scripted and unscripted.
If we look closely, hints of a potential production deal were right in front of us. J.Lo is already currently working on two films with the streaming giant. The actor and musician will be starring in The Mother, helmed by Mulan director Niki Caro, and The Cipher, based on the Isabel Ojeda Maldonado novel of the same name. With this in mind, it makes sense to bring Lopez on board in a more permanent capacity.
Speaking of the newly-formed partnership with Netflix in a statement, Jennifer Lopez shared; "I am excited to announce my new partnership with Netflix... Elaine, Benny and I believe there is no better home for us than a forward-leaning content creation company that seeks to defy conventional wisdom and directly market to the millions across the globe who no longer view art and entertainment with the kind of boundaries and limitations of the past."
If these films to come are anything like the mastery that was Hustlers, sign us the heck up.
