Enabling What is to Come: Ifp Previews its 2017 Ifp Week

“Film” — what’s in a word? It’s still the first half of Filmmaker, even as our new logo design nods to the ways in which this term’s meaning is continually mutating and no longer fixed in celluloid. But, as Joana Vicente, Executive Director of Ifp (Filmmaker’s publisher) and Made in New York Media Center notes, it’s been dropped this year from the name of Ifp’s signature event, which begins today through September 21 in Brooklyn. Over the last several years “Independent Film Week” has shortened to “Ifp Film Week” to, now, simply, “Ifp Week.” That’s because, as Vicente says, “the […]

Jennifer Lopez Just Designed New Shoes with Giuseppe Zanotti - and Named One After Her Maid in Manhattan Character
Jennifer Lopez is about to leave her next footprint on the shoe industry.

The star, who created a collection with footwear designer Giuseppe Zanotti in the spring, is set to launch her second collection with the brand in the fall, this time with four new styles — an assortment that she tells Footwear News resembles a mix of both her and Zanotti’s personal aesthetics.

“This collection is a natural evolution from last season’s debut,” Lopez says of the designs, which include lace-up over-the-knee boots, embellished booties and sandals and will range in price from $1,495 to $2,795.

Jennifer Lopez to Topline and Produce Rom-Com “Second Act”

Jennifer Lopez in “The Boy Next Door”: Universal Pictures

Jennifer Lopez is returning to romantic comedies. The “Shades of Blue” actress and multi-hyphenate has signed on to star in and produce STXfilms’ “Second Act,” a rom-com about a woman over 40 beginning a new career. This news, reported by Variety, means Lopez may have another title to add to her list of much-loved films like “The Wedding Planner” and “Maid in Manhattan.”

Second Act” will see Lopez playing “a big box store employee who reinvents her life and her lifestyle, which gets her the chance to prove to Madison Avenue that street smarts are as valuable as a college degree,” Variety summarizes.

The rom-com was penned by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas — a producer on several of Lopez’s projects like “The Boy Next Door,” “Shades of Blue,” and a couple Lopez concert docs — and Justin Zackham (“The Bucket List”). Peter Segal (“Shameless,” “50 First Dates”) will helm the project. Goldsmith-Thomas, Zackham, and Benny Medina will produce alongside Lopez.

“There are so many things I love about this project and script,” Lopez commented. “People try to put women to sleep at a certain age. ‘Second Act’ is a story that empowers the every woman to do more, to be more, and not limit their dreams. I am thrilled to partner with Stx as they continue to create and empower the female audience.”

Second Act” is part of Stx’s push for more female-led content. The Jessica Chastain-led “Molly’s Game,” about Olympic hopeful turned high-stakes poker game player Molly Bloom, “Bad Moms” sequel “A Bad Moms Christmas,” and R-rated puppet comedy “The Happytime Murders” starring Melissa McCarthy are among the company’s slated women-centric projects.

You can catch Lopez next in NBC’s 2018 musical event “Bye Bye Bird Live!” She’ll also topline and exec produce the HBO film “Cocaine Godmother,” about the famed criminal Griselda Blanco. Lopez is also a series regular on NBC’s “Shades of Blue.” The third season of the police procedural will air Sundays beginning in 2018.

Lopez earned a Golden Globe nod in 1998 for her portrayal of Tejano music star Selena Quintanilla-Pérez in “Selena.” “It was a meaty role, but it was few and far between, especially for Latinos to have a role like that,” Lopez has said about the film. “I think it’s still challenging for women, especially being Latina. Thinking about ‘Selena’ 20 years ago and to have a role like that, I was very lucky. I was very fortunate. But it’s still a struggle for women.”

Jennifer Lopez to Topline and Produce Rom-Com “Second Act” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
