The story will focus on a deadly female assassin, played by Lopez, who comes out of hiding to protect a daughter she gave up years ago while on the run.
‘Mulan’ helmer, Niki Caro, is currently in talks to direct the project. The script was script originally penned by Misha Green (‘Lovecraft Country’) and revised by Andrea Berloff (‘Straight Outta Compton’).
Green, Elaine Goldsmith Thomas, Benny Medina, Roy Lee and Miri Yoon will also produce.
Lopez, who seems to be having a career revival after her star turn in ‘Hustlers’, has previously worked with Netflix on an adaptation of the Isabella Maldonado novel ‘The Cipher’ which focuses on FBI agent Nina Guerrera (Lopez), who is pulled into a serial killer’s case after he leaves complex codes and riddles online, which are linked to his recent murders. She is currently filming ‘Shotgun Wedding’ for Lionsgate. She will next be seen in ‘Marry Me’ alongside Owen Wilson.
Caro is set to direct Amblin Partners’ ‘Beautiful Ruins’ based on the Jess Walter’s New York Times bestseller, she will also direct three episodes of the Amazon musical series ‘Daisy Jones & The Six.’
