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