Jennifer Lopez to Seduce Teen 'Boy Next Door' for Director Rob Cohen
After joining Jason Statham for the abysmal action thriller Parker earlier this year, "American Idol" judge Jennifer Lopez has found a potentially more promising film to shoot before the reality show returns in 2014. Variety reports Lopez will lead The Boy Next Door, the next micro-budget film from Paranormal Activity and The Purge producer Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions banner. The story follows a mother, recently separate from her husband, who sparks an inappropriate affair with a teenage neighbor boy, a friend of her own son. However, the relationship turns out to be more than she can handle. Read on!
When the woman tries to abruptly end the relationship, the boy stirs up trouble in her life. Sounds like some Single White Female type action here, and while it sounds wholly familiar, hopefully with Blum's involvement as a producer, we're looking at a solid thriller to join his other successes. Rob Cohen (xXx, The Fast and the Furious) will direct the film with a script from newcomer Barbara Curry. The project is bound to make money back since it will only cost between $3 million or $4 million, which likely means Lopez is doing this for a much smaller paycheck than she's used to. Lopez hasn't made the best big screen choices for a long time now, but maybe this will get her back on the right track. Interested?
