EXPECTING Jennifer Lopez

Expecting a Movie Version

The movie blogs are atwitter over a Deadline report that Jennifer Lopez is in talks for a supporting role in the adaptation of the pregnancy manual, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, (Workman). Already in the cast are Cameron Diaz and Matthew Morrison. Directed by Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee, Everybody’s Fine), it is planned for release on May 11, 2012.

How do you turn a manual into a movie? The producers have said that it will be like the film of He’s Just Not That In to You (which didn’t share much with the book other than the title and a basic concept). It will follow several couples as they prepare for childbirth and is set to begin shooting in August.

Lopez is also in talks to star in Parker, a film based on the Donald Westlake novels (Jason Stratham will be playing the lead; Lopez is considering the role of his love interest) and  directed by Taylor Hackford. Parker has already been  portrayed  by Mel Gibson in Payback and Lee Marvin in Point Blank.
