Jennifer Lopez To Play Carmen Sandiego?

by Kristina Uriegas-Reyes

Carmen Sandiego, the glamorous detective turned traveling thief, is a cartoon lady I hold near and dear to my heart (I totally learned a lot from her!) so I’m not sure if I’m excited or annoyed to hear a live-action version starring Jennifer Lopez might be in the works. Walden Media has acquired rights to Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? and are in talks to have Jennifer Lopez play the main character. As of right now, she’s only officially attached to the project as producer though. Apparently in the nineties, a Disney version starring Sandra Bullock couldn’t get off the ground, but I found this side-by-side photo of her Carmen Sandiego via google. With her red hair at the time, I can totally see it. As for J.Lo, there could be worse candidates. I’ve kind of had a soft spot for J.Lo kicking ass since her badass role in Enough. She’s also one of the few people probably glam enough to pull off that red hat and trench combo.
