Where in the world is… Jennifer Lopez? The 42-year-old actress and singer is said to be producing and possibly starring in the film adaption of the classic video game, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, according to Deadline:
“Walden Media has acquired rights to turn Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? into a live-action film involving Jennifer Lopez. I’d heard that Walden Media will develop the property as a vehicle for Lopez to play the title character, but Walden Media said at this point, she’s attached to produce only,” the site reports.
Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, featured Sandiego, a former ACME spy turned thief. The video game was used in many schools as an educational tool because it focused on teaching geography and history. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? was first released in 1985. The game was also turned into a children’s game show on PBS that aired from 1991 to 1995. According to Deadline, in the late 90s Disney optioned the rights to a movie version of the game that never made it to the big screen.
The film is said to be produced by Lopez, her Nuyorican Production partners, and Underground Films. As a fan of the game, I would love to see a movie version. I’m just not sure if Lopez is the right match.Tags: emcblue, Jennifer Lopez, Lindsay Lewis, Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?
