New suspense film The Mother will star Jennifer Lopez as a deadly assassin, and streaming service Netflix has released the first look at Lopez in her role.
The actress, 53 years old and starring in the movie Hustlers, plays an assassin who goes out to protect her daughter, whom she previously gave up for adoption.
The preview shows Lopez’s character living a reclusive and secretive life. Her vacation, which takes place in a remote location surrounded by snowy mountains, is the complete antithesis of the action to come.
Lopez claims she needs protection now, and then a clip of her daughter, Lucy Paez, being filmed by a man is shown. “She needs protection right now,” Lopez said.
In another scene, Lopez and Paez chat while sitting in a booth. She said to her daughter, “Did you see anyone out there,” and added, “It will keep coming.”
The film promises that Lopez will do anything to save her daughter, and the setting can be anything from frigid mountains to crowded city streets.
During the dub, Lopez guides the audience to her location in case something goes wrong.
Joseph Fiennes, Omari Hardwick, Paul Raci and Gael Garcia Bernal also have roles in the film alongside Lopez and Paez.
According to Variety, Hardwick will play an FBI agent, while Raci will play an ally of the character played by Lopez. Both roles will appear on the show. On the other side, Fiennes and Bernal will take on the role of the mortals chasing her daughter.
According to Variety, Jennifer Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions and Netflix will co-produce their first feature film, titled “The Mother.” As producer, Lopez will be assisted by Elaine Goldsmith Thomas and Benny Medina of Nuyorican Productions, as well as Roy Lee and Miri Yoon of Vertigo Entertainment, Green and Marc Evans. In addition, Green will also produce with Marc Evans. Molly Allen will serve as executive producer.
