Flashdancer Sues J. Lo

18 November 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The female construction worker who inspired cult movie Flashdance is suing Jennifer Lopez for copyright infringement claiming her video "I'm Glad" is an unauthorized depiction of her life story. Maureen Marder, who was portrayed by Jennifer Beals in the 1983 movie, claims that Lopez's promo, which recreates scenes from Flashdance, owes both its story and its soul to her. Marder's attorney Robert Helfing says, "My client has received almost nothing for her contribution. Now her life story is on the screen again and other people are profiting from it." »

Lavigne's 'Boi' to roll as Par film

28 May 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Singer Avril Lavigne's hit single "Sk8er Boi" is heading to the big screen. Paramount Pictures has optioned the song and hired David Zabel to adapt its words into a feature film to be produced by studio-based MTV Films and Alphaville. The song, which captures the divide between cliques and cultures, is about a teenage girl who rejects a skater boy with a crush on her because her friends didn't approve of him -- even though she secretly likes him. Years later, he becomes a famous rock star and she is left with regrets. Because the song has become an anthem for teenagers, the film will be true to spirit of the song. Also titled Sk8er Boi, the feature will focus on the two teens from different backgrounds and the social constraints in which they find themselves. The project, though not a musical, will have a heavy musical component in the style of the studio's previous hits Flashdance, Footloose and Save the Last Dance. »

Lopez Lawsuit Paves Way for Movie Role

7 May 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jennifer Lopez is in talks to appear in a remake of 1983 movie Flashdance - after movie bosses spotted her copying dance routines from the original in her "I'm Glad" video. Bosses at Paramount, who made the original flick, were stunned by the promo - which copies Jennifer Beals' "What A Feeling" routine almost entirely - and demanded damages from J.LO's record company Sony. A source tells gossip site Pagesix, "The scenes were, frame by frame, the same. Paramount sent a legal letter to Sony claiming copyright infringement. There was nothing Sony could do - it is the same - so they are settling." But they were so impressed with Lopez' moves, Paramount are now keen to remake the movie - with her in the lead role. »

J.Lo Keeps It Real in New Video

24 April 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jennifer Lopez was so eager to make the video for her new single "I'm Glad" an exact replica of '80s movie Flashdance, she donned the same bodysuit that star Jennifer Beals wore 20 years ago. The New York native, 32, who based her video on the 1983 classic, insisted on wearing the same red bodysuit Beals' body was adorned with in the film's notorious water-pouring scene. A source who worked on the hot video, which was filmed in Los Angeles in February, says, "The dress had been in storage and never worn since the film, but Jennifer made sure she got it for the video." But, according to American magazine Us Weekly, J.Lo's shapely buttocks posed a slight problem. The source adds, "She had to have the suit cut in the back so that two panels of material could be added so it would fit her." »
