Jennifer Lopez is set to star in the upcoming Netflix film “The Mother.” Niki Caro, who recently helmed Disney’s “Mulan” remake, is in talks to direct.
“The Mother,” which Lopez will also produce, centers on a deadly assassin who comes out of hiding to protect the daughter she gave up years before. “Lovecraft Country” showrunner Misha Green is writing the screenplay, with current revisions by Andrea Berloff (“Straight Outta Compton”).
Along with Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith Thomas is producing for Nuyorican Productions, as well as Green, Benny Medina, and Roy Lee and Miri Yoon for Vertigo Entertainment.
