A person doesn’t get to be as famous as Jennifer Lopez without having a wide-ranging career. Music, movies, television—she’s basically done it all, with a few small exceptions. One of those is science fiction. Oh sure, she was in The Cell and Anaconda, but those came out decades ago. Now, Lopez getting back into sci-fi in a big, big way with the biggest streamer there is.

Deadline reports she’s set to star and produce a new film called Atlas, which is being made for Netflix. Brad Peyton (Rampage, San Andreas) is attached to direct from an original script by Leo Sardarian (Crackle’s StartUp), which is being polished by Aron Eli Coleite (Heroes, Star Trek Discovery, Locke & Key).

The premise is intriguing but oddly familiar. Apparently Lopez plays “a woman fighting for humanity in a future where an AI soldier has determined the only way to end war is to end humanity. To outthink this rogue AI, [she] must work with the one thing she fears most—another AI.” Wait. Is AtlasTerminator 2? It sure sounds similar, what with the whole two artificially intelligent beings, one of which is teaming up with a powerful woman to save the world” thing and all.

“I’m so honored to be working with Jennifer, Elaine [Goldsmith-Thomas], and the rest of the team at Nuyorican Productions along with our partners Joby [Harold] and Tory [Tunnell] at Safehouse,” Peyton said in a statement. “Having the chance to direct Jennifer in the title role of this movie is a dream come true, as I know she’ll bring the incredible strength, depth, and authenticity we’ve all come to admire from her work. Furthermore, Jeff [Fierson] and I are so excited to be back working with… the entire team at Netflix. They have been nothing short of amazing to work with and we are blessed to have the opportunity to make another movie on the service.” That last movie Peyton is referring to is an action thriller called Sweet Girl, which he produced; it stars Jason Momoa and comes to Netflix later this summer.

Really, though, the main event here is Jennifer Lopez and an AI battling another AI to save humanity. And you can sign us the hell up for that.

Illustration for article titled Updates From Obi-Wan Kenobi, Naomi, and More

Every House Is Haunted

Deadline reports Corin Hardy is attached to direct Every House is Haunted, a horror film based on a script by Jason Pagan and Andrew Deutschman for Netflix. The story follows an insurance investigator who “tries to debunk claims that a couple’s death was caused by a haunted house, but his doubts are challenged by a psychic and the mysterious occurrences he witnesses with his own eyes.” Sam Raimi’s Raimi Productions is attached to produce the project alongside Zainab Azizi.


Wisteria

Kyle MacLachlan may have teased his involvement in David Lynch’s mysterious new television series, Wisteria, in a recent Instagram post.


Obi-Wan Kenobi

Ahmed Best confirmed on Twitter that, alas, he will not reprise his role as Jar Jar Binks in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series at Disney+.


Charmed

Deadline has word Mareya Salazar will recur on the fourth season of Charmed as Joséfina, the Charmed Ones’ second cousin described as “a strong, opinionated young woman who shows up on their doorstep with surprises and secrets. She also has a mission of her own.”


Naomi

KSiteTV reports Barry Watson, Mouzam Makker, Marcy-Charles Jones, Aidan Gemme, and Aidan Puig have joined the cast of the CW’s Naomi. Watson will play Greg McDuffie, Naomi’s adoptive father, opposite Makkar as Naomi’s mother, Jennifer. Jones will play Annabelle, “Naomi’s fiercely loyal classmate and best friend who is unafraid of telling Naomi hard truths” alongside Gemme as the “sweet, shy and nerdy” Jacob. Puig rounds out the cast as Nathan “a high school jock who briefly dated Naomi before she ended the relationship. Though the two remain friends, they still share an undeniable chemistry, and Naomi’s interest in another teen sparks Nathan’s jealousy.”


Ghosts

CBS has officially ordered the U.S. remake of Ghosts—starring iZombie’s Rose McIver—to series. [TV Line]


Wrecked

According to Variety, BBC Three has ordered Wrecked, a new six-part horror-comedy series set aboard a mega cruise ship. The series will follow “19-year-old new recruit Jamie as he joins the crew in search of his missing sister” last seen “working aboard the same vessel on a previous tour and never made it home. Jamie is initiated into cruise life and gets a crash course on the teen tribes within the staff who party hard and remain oblivious to the bloodthirsty murders taking place on board. Jamie is forced to turn detective and uncover the sinister truth.” In a statement, series writer Ryan J. Brown promised the show’s “kills are brutal, the laughs are loud, and the heartfelt moments land with real candor.”


Pacific Rim: The Black

Bloody-Disgusting reports Netflix has renewed Pacific Rim: The Black for a second season.
