HBO has begun development of a film about drug lord Griselda Blanco with Jennifer Lopez attached to star in the role.
Known as ‘The Cocaine Godmother,’ Blanco revolutionized the U.S. drug trade during the 1970s and 1980s and became the most powerful female cartel member of all time.
Lopez will also serve as an executive producer through her Nuyorican Productions banner. Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Benny Medina, Julie Yorn and Rick Yorn will also executive produce.
No other casting has been announced.
