London, Aug 9 (IANS) Actress Jennifer Lopez has signed up to star opposite to Jason Statham in “Parker”.
JLo, who took a three-year break from films before making Alan Poul’s “The Back-Up Plan” last year, will join actor Jason Statham along with Nick Nolte for forthcoming noir thriller.
The 42-year old will play a real estate agent, while Nolte will be a mentor to Statham’s title character in the movie, which is an adaptation of Donald Westlake’s 2000 book Flashfire.
Describing JLo’s role, director Taylor Hackford told the Hollywood Reporter: “She plays a real estate agent who finds that a little larceny may in fact be in the cards for her.”

The filming of the movie will start in New Orleans this week and the flick is set to release in October, next year.
