Jennifer Lopez starring in new movie Bridge and Tunnel

Jennifer Lopez will topline New Line Cinema’s Bridge and Tunnel, portraying a stock trader who relies on a suburban teen who day-trades on his home PC, reports Variety.

Production on the romantic comedy is expected to begin in late spring, with Tribeca’s Jane Rosenthal and Robert De Niro producing and Greg Berlanti directing. The studio is still looking to cast the male lead.

The project will reunite Lopez with New Line following last year’s Monster-in-Law.

Berlanti, who created The WB series Jack & Bobby and Everwood, signed on last spring to direct and rewrite the script with Michael Green. Jonathan Greenberg, Jonathan Lisco and C. Jay Cox wrote the original script. Berlanti’s partner, Mickey Liddell, will executive produce.

    She is a great actress, but she’s mainly been in romantic comedies – and comedies hardly ever win Academy Awards or Golden Globes.

    She got a lot of praise for her performance in “Out of Sight,” and Ebert and Roeper said in their year-end review that “An Unfinished Life” was one of the most underrated movies of 2005.
