The movie will follow the CRAZY life of Fidel’s former lover Marita Lorenz, who became pregnant with the leader’s child, got an abortion, left the country, and was recruited by the CIA to assassinate her lover after she joined anti-communist movements in the United States.

Not only that, but Marita also testified before the US Congress and said she had seen evidence of a plot between the CIA, Cuban operatives, and Lee Harvey Oswald to assassinate John F. Kennedy!

Talk about an eventful life!

While we don’t know who else is going to be in the movie at the moment, Lawrence will be reuniting with American Hustle writer Eric Warren Singer for Marita.

On top of starring in the film though, the 25-year-old actress will also be producing the project!

What do you think about Jennifer’s new project — and who do you think should play the Cuban leader?!
