Jennifer Lopez continues to plow forward with her booming film career. The pop diva is said to be in talks to star alongside Ben Affleck in writer/director Kevin Smith’s ‘Jersey Girl.’
A publicist for Lopez confirmed that the ‘Enough’ star is definitely in negotiations for the film, which has long had Ben Affleck attached. If she does in fact end up in the movie, ‘Jersey Girl’ will be J.Lo’s second pairing with the ‘Changing Lanes’ actor.
The two highly prolific stars’ first onscreen match-up, ‘Gigli,’ just finished shooting a couple of months ago. Directed by Martin Brest (‘Beverly Hills Cop’), ‘Gigli’ is a dramatic comedy with Ben in the title role as a hit man who involves the ‘Ain’t It Funny’ vocalistress in a kidnapping, believing her, perhaps mistakenly, to be in the same line of work as himself.
‘Jersey Girl’ is about a man whose life is turned upside down by a woman and her 6-year-old daughter.
