‘Second Act’ star Jennifer Lopez is joining the cast of an upcoming Netflix science thriller ‘Atlas.’ This film is part of a first-look deal that the celebrity signed with the streaming service.
According to Deadline, the “film follows Atlas, a woman fighting for humanity in a future where an AI soldier has determined the only way to end war is to end humanity. To outthink this rogue AI, Atlas must work with the one thing she fears most — another AI.”
The film is being written by Aron Eli Coleite based on an original script from Leo Sardarian with Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell from Safehouse Pictures producing.
‘San Andreas’ and ‘Rampage’ director Brad Peyton will be at the helm of the movie. He praised Lopez and the rest of the filmmakers.
Peyton said, “I’m so honored to be working with Jennifer, Elaine and the rest of the team at Nuyorican Productions along with our partners Joby and Tory at Safehouse.”
“Having the chance to direct Jennifer in the title role of this movie is a dream come true, as I know she’ll bring the incredible strength, depth and authenticity we’ve all come to admire from her work,” he continued. “Furthermore, Jeff and I are so excited to be back working with Scott, Ori and the entire team at Netflix. They have been nothing short of amazing to work with and we are blessed to have the opportunity to make another movie on the service.”
This movie is part of the deal signed by Jennifer Lopez and her production company Nuyorican Productions with Netflix Productions, announced in June 2021.
“I am excited to announce my new partnership with Netflix,” Lopez said in a statement. “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. We at Nuyorican Productions are thrilled to find like-minded partners in Ted Sarandos, Scott Stuber, Bela Bajaria and the whole team and look forward to getting to work right away.”
