Jennifer Lopez cast as female drug lord in HBO's 'Cocaine Cowboys' movie

UPI News Service, 08/11/2016 

Jennifer Lopez has signed on to star as drug lord Griselda Blanco in an upcoming HBO television film.

According to Variety, the former "American Idol" judge will also be executive producing the untitled project along with her studio, Nuyorican Productions.

No other casting has been announced.

The film will focus on the true story of Blanco, a notorious Colombian drug lord known as "The Cocaine Godmother" who revolutionized the United States drug trade throughout the '70s and '80s.

Blanco was killed in Colombia in September of 2012 and was the subject of drug documentary "Cocaine Cowboys" in 2006.

"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."
