HBO signs on Jennifer Lopez as actor and producer on their new biographical movie about Griselda Blanco.

Jennifer Lopez is an all-rounder when it comes to talent. She is a superb, trending singer, she looks like a 20 something at the age of 47, an eclectic dancer and a versatile actress. The best thing is Jen tries to keep everything up to date in all parts of her career. 

She has been in the recent series Shades of Blue on NBC was nominated for a multitude of awards this season and we cannot forget her role in the Boy Next Door which brought out her fiercer side for her role. All of these acting roles seem like a reckoning for the role she just signed up for. 

Through her own Twitter and via Variety, the fans of the singer were informed that the next role they will be seeing this Latino star is of the Cocaine Godmother herself, Griselda Blanco. 

Blanco was considered the most powerful female cartel member of all time and had a huge effect on the drug trade in the 1970s and 1980s. She is said to have a great impact on the drug trade in the U.S.

HBO will be making a biographical movie on the drug lord including all known details of her life from the rise to power and ultimate downfall of the infamous Columbian drug kingpin who pioneered drug trafficking from Columbia to the U.S.

Jennifer Lopez said in an interview that she had always been fascinated by the criminal woman’s life. Blanco employed such tactics as designing custom bras and girdles, which hid cocaine for her drug mules flying to the States. She was finally convicted of three murders, though Miami detectives suspect she was involved in scores more. She was shot down at the age of 69 in 2012.

Jennifer will also serve as the movie’s executive producer on the project through her Nuyorican Productions company.
