J. Lo plans to star in and produce buddy cop movie

J. Lo plans to star in and produce buddy cop movie. She’d play one of two female detectives tracking the killer of their shared lover

Posted on

If you think Jennifer Lopez’s off-screen romantic life is complicated, wait ’til you see ”Double or Nothing.” That’s the name of a thriller she’s attached to star in and produce, according to the Hollywood Reporter. It’s a buddy cop movie that’s also a romantic triangle — only one of the three sides is dead.

New Line Cinema describes the movie as a female ”Lethal Weapon,” though the plot synopsis makes it sound more like the Shelley Long-Bette Midler comedy ”Outrageous Fortune.” J. Lo would play one of two policewomen who team up to solve the murder of a third cop, the man who was two-timing them. In the process, of course, they also try to find out which one he really loved. No word yet on who will play Lopez’s partner, but we’re guessing it won’t be Gwyneth Paltrow.
