Jennifer Lopez to Portray Drug Lord Griselda Blanco in HBO Film

Jennifer Lopez just landed the role of real-life drug dealer Griselda Blanco in an upcoming HBO TV movie.

The 47-year-old superstar will play the late notorious drug lord in the film which focuses on the rise and fall of her empire. She’s considered the most powerful female cartel member of all time and had a huge effect on the drug trade in the 70s and 80s, THR reports.

“I’ve been fascinated by the life of this corrupt and complicated woman for many years,” Jennifer said in a statement. “The idea of teaming with HBO felt like the perfect fit for finally bringing Griselda’s story to life.”

Griselda was killed in September 2012.
