Jennifer Lopez Starring in Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Atlas’ for Netflix

Jennifer Lopez Starring in Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Atlas’ for Netflix
Jennifer Lopez is humanity’s last hope.

Well, at least that’s the premise of “Atlas,” a sci-fi thriller set to star the “Jenny From the Block” singer and “Hustlers” actress. Brad Peyton, who orchestrated on-screen carnage in “Rampage” and “San Andreas,” will direct the film. “Atlas” unfolds in a bleak-sounding future where an AI soldier has determined the only way to end war is to end humanity. Obviously, this extremist approach to achieving a pacifist paradise doesn’t go down so well with Lopez, who finds herself teaming up with, as the official logline puts it: “the one thing she fears most — another AI.” Dun dun dun!

“Having the chance to direct Jennifer in the title role of this movie is a dream come true, as I know she’ll bring the incredible strength, depth and authenticity we’ve all come to admire from her work,” Peyton said.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Addresses Lack of Afro-Latino Representation in ‘In the Heights’: ‘We Fell Short’

Lin-Manuel Miranda Addresses Lack of Afro-Latino Representation in ‘In the Heights’: ‘We Fell Short’
In the Heights” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is addressing criticism over the film’s lack of Afro-Latino representation.

In a statement posted to Twitter, Miranda apologized for not including more dark-skinned Afro-Latinos in the film’s cast, especially in the leading roles.

“I started writing ‘In the Heights’ because I didn’t feel seen. And over the past 20 years all I wanted was for us — All of us — to feel seen,” Miranda’s statement begins. “I’m seeing the discussion around Afro-Latino representation in our film this weekend and it is clear that many in our dark-skinned Afro-Latino community don’t feel sufficiently represented within it, particularly among the leading roles.”

The discussion Miranda mentions stems from a video article in The Root, published on Wednesday, which points out that there are no dark-skinned Afro-Latinos in the film’s leading roles. In an interview with “In the Heights” director Jon M. Chu and stars Leslie Grace,

Zoey's Playlist Cancellation: Jane Levy Dings NBC for Choosing 'Shows About Crime and Guns' Over One 'About Love'

Zoey's Playlist Cancellation: Jane Levy Dings NBC for Choosing 'Shows About Crime and Guns' Over One 'About Love'
Jane Levy is singing a frustrated tune in the wake of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist‘s cancellation.

In an interview with VanityFair.com, Levy took NBC to task for prioritizing procedurals over a feel-good show like Zoey’s. “I’m sorry, but I have to say this: I look at the new NBC lineup, and it’s like, ‘Okay, we could watch a lot of shows about crime and guns,’” she lamented. “Our show is about love. It’s a real shame to take that off the air. I feel like it’s the wrong move.”

NBC pulled the plug on the musical dramedy last week after two seasons. And talks to move the show to the network’s sibling streaming outlet, Peacock, fell through. Lionsgate, the studio behind Zoey’s, is now shopping it around to other streaming outlets.

“I believe we can have a real chance somewhere else,” showrunner Austin Winsberg declared on Twitter last Wednesday after the cancellation news broke, before urging fans to make their displeasure known. “But the more fan support we can throw behind it — the better.”

And if it really is the end? Levy tells VanityFair.com she is filled with “gratitude,” adding, “I feel like I did everything that I wanted to with this show. If it’s over, I don’t have any regrets. I gave it my all and so did everybody else.”
