It looks like Jennifer Lopez will be taking on the Narcos life as she portrays the most infamous female drug lord of all time.
Griselda Blanco was a large part of the infamous Medellin drug cartel, that was founded by Pablo Escobar, and known for producing and transporting large amounts of cocaine to the United States.
She was nicknamed the cocaine godmother and was known for transporting cocaine through Miami, New York and Southern California.
Griselda Blanco was far from your average drug lord as she was suggested to be responsible for over 200 murders.
Jennifer Lopez is also set to produce the HBO movie as she stated her interest in this criminals life via THR,
“I’ve been fascinated by the life of this corrupt and complicated woman for many years,” Lopez said Wednesday in a statement. “The idea of teaming with HBO felt like the perfect fit for finally bringing Griselda’s story to life.”
It looks like J-Lo will be taking on the criminal and bad guy role of a life time as Griselda Blanco was also rumored to have gunned down her two ex-husbands.
With the recent hit Netflix series Narcos coming back for its highly anticipated season 2, there is no better timing for J-Lo to get started on her new drug lord flick.
While I am a bit disappointed this is just a HBO movie, I will absolutely be tuning in as the actress takes on a role beyond her regular movie duties .
So what do you think? Will Jennifer Lopez’s new movie be as hit as Narcos? Or would we be better off with her starring in her own Griselda Blanco Netflix series?
