JLo to star as drug lord Griselda Blanco

Los Angeles, Aug 11 (IANS) Actress-singer Jennifer Lopez is set to star as notorious Colombian drug lord Griselda Blanco in an untitled TV movie for HBO.

The film focuses on the rise and fall of Blanco, who came to be known as ‘The Cocaine Godmother’ and who revolutionized the US drug trade during the 1970s and 1980s and became a powerful female cartel member.

Lopez will star in and executive produce the project via her Nuyorican Productions banner alongside company topper Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and the singer-actress’s manager Benny Medina, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

“I’ve been fascinated by the life of this corrupt and complicated woman for many years,” Lopez said in a statement.

“The idea of teaming with HBO felt like the perfect fit for finally bringing Griselda’s story to life.”

For Lopez, the HBO movie comes as production continues on season two of “Shades of Blue”, which she also executive produces.
