Netflix just signed a multi-year production contract with actress, singer, and producer, Jennifer Lopez. As CEO of Nuyorican Productions, Lopez will be working alongside Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, the president of said company, and Benny Medina, to bring this streaming platform fresh film and television content. The closest projects out of the lineup include two feature films starring Lopez: ‘The Mother’ and ‘The Cipher.’ The former of these films– ‘The Mother’– is scheduled to begin production this fall, for a release in late 2022, and Lopez is already beginning to train for the role.
In an effort to highlight the work of diverse female actors, writers, and filmmakers, Lopez hopes to provide opportunities and inspiration for the women of Hollywood through this production deal. “Elaine, Benny and I believe there is no better home for us than a forward-leaning content creation company that seeks to defy conventional wisdom and directly market to the millions across the globe who no longer view art and entertainment with the kind of boundaries and limitations of the past,” Lopez said.
