Jennifer Lopez and her fierceness are making their return to film!!!


After a hiatus to focus on music and family, Mizzzz Lopez will be back on the big screen in The 33.

The 33 tells the real-life story of 33 Chilean miners who ended up trapped half a mile beneath the earth's surface following an August 2010 cave-in. After a spectacular effort by Chile's government and drilling experts, the men were rescued 69 days later- where all were found alive!!!

This film will be Lopez's first big-screen role since starring in the action thriller Parker, opposite Jason Statham.

Alongside J.Lo, Antonio Banderas will be playing Mario Sepulveda, the miner nicknamed “Super Mario,” who was essentially the media spokesperson for the group.

No talk yet on Lopez's character specifically, but we can't wait to see her tackle what's sure to be an emotional role!!!

Production will reportedly begin in Chile this Fall, and we can totally dig it.

    The miners and the rescue party were the stars of this story. I don't recall a woman being a leading figure in the event so what is her character? A miner's wife that stands there wringing her hands in agony for the entire movie?

    Why do casting directors keep hiring Lopez? She's never been a draw and her acting is, quite frankly, awful.
    Re: MichJB – That's pretty much the extent of her acting ability, so that's what I imagine they'll have her do. They need a token female spic in this ridiculous film; we all know what happened because we couldn't escape it at the time it all went down, so I can't understand why anyone wants to pay to see a movie about this subject. It wasn't that interesting in the first place.

    She is a terrible actress! Let's hope that her part will be small and insignificant in the story of the miners so Lopez won't ruin the film.

    Parker pretty much went straight to video.

    The miners and the rescuers were the main event of the story. Maybe she's gonna play someones wife of one the miners or a media character. It'll be interesting though. I can't wait to see it this fall. I hope she does a better job in this movie than she did in "PARKER", because she did a horrible job in that movie, that's why it's on DVD already.
