Jenny from the block is big-screen bound once more. EW has confirmed that the former American Idol judge is currently shooting footage for a forthcoming 3D concert film. The movie, titled Dance Again, will be an account of Lopez’s career over the last few years. No word yet on how Idol will figure in, but it’s got to be more than a footnote in the final product.
Lopez, a co-star of this spring’s underwhelming ensemble comedy What to Expect When You’re Expecting, will be taking a gamble by making a concert film. While Justin Bieber’s 2011 multidimensional flick was a box-office hit, similar efforts by the Jonas Brothers, the cast of Glee, and Katy Perry all underperformed. Perhaps Lopez could try courting success by appealing to Millennial nostalgia in her movie; after all, it’s working for 98 Degrees.
