This A list everything in her mind has a big movie box office bomb about to land.
She doesn’t care though.
She is also glad she took the gig instead of a more high profile gig because it would have paid less, been more work and a lot more travel to promote.
She is perfectly happy taking very large checks for making mediocre movies.
Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ Pushed to 2019 at NBC
NBC is having difficulties caging its Birdie.
For the second time, the network has delayed its Bye Bye Birdie live musical starring Jennifer Lopez.
Picked up in October 2016 to air in December 2017, Lopez’s busy schedule prompted NBC to push the live musical to December 2018. That is no longer the case, as Lopez’s scheduling as well as that of producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have prompted Birdie to be pushed to 2019. NBC is said to be searching for a new musical to fill the December 2018 opening. Should that not happen, the Bob Greenblatt-led network would go two holiday seasons without one of its trademark live productions. – Source
Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Second Act’ Moves to December
STX is moving the release date of Jennifer Lopez’s upcoming romantic comedy Second Act from Nov. 21 to Dec. 14. Instead of battling it out in the crowded Thanksgiving corridor, the movie will now stake a claim in mid-December in hopes of playing through the holidays and into the new year.
On its new date, the film will face off against Universal’s Peter Jackson-produced fantasy pic Mortal Engines and Sony’s animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse.
Written by Justin Zackham and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Second Act, which is said to be in the vein of 2002’s Maid in Manhattan, stars Lopez as a 40-year-old woman who embarks on a new career on Madison Avenue. – Source
