J.Lo's movie marriage
09:30 19 September 2005
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony will co-star together in a new film - as husband and wife.
Despite the disastrous 'Gigli', which J.Lo starred in with then-fiancé Ben Affleck, the Latin beauty has once again decided to work with her other half in upcoming movie 'Who Killed Hector Lavoe?'
Marc will star as Puerto Rican jazz legend Hector Lavoe, who was also known as La Voz, while Jennifer - who is also producing the film - will play his spouse.
She revealed: "It's the story of a singer, and I'll play his wife."
Last year, Jennifer bought the rights to the film and cast Marc in the lead role - but originally intended not to star in it.
A source said at the time: "She was going to play Hector's wife but she decided her talents would be equally useful behind the camera. She's desperate to give Marc his big break and wants to be around him 24/7."
Insiders said J.Lo didn't want to co-star with Marc after her two projects with ex-fiancé Ben Affleck, 'Gigli' and 'Jersey Girl', flopped at the box office and were panned by the critics.
