I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m ready for the great Jennifer Lopez, Movie Star comeback tour. The J.Lo-naissance, if you will. And if anyone can make it happen, it’s going to be the folks at Annapurna, a company known for their critically acclaimed and edgy entertainment.

Lopez will star in The Hustlers, a fact-based thriller about a former high-class stripper who turns the tables on a bunch of Wall Street scumbags via some modern day Robin Hood-ing. Sign me up.

men in black spin-off cast

Update: Sony has sent out an update clarifying Rebecca Ferguson’s role in the film…by making it less clear! It seems that the Mission: Impossible star is not playing the “female lead.” That role still belongs to Tessa Thompson. And that’s it. This makes us lean even harder on our (purely speculative!) original theory that Ferguson may be the villain in the film.

Our modified version of the original story continues below.

***

The “fallout” from Rebecca Ferguson’s breakout success in the Mission: Impossible franchise is real. Ferguson stole the scenes in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and its 2018 sequel Mission: Impossible – Fallout, so much so that fans declared her character to not only be an equal to Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt, but that Ferguson herself was a star on par with one of “Hollywood’s last movie stars.” So we waited with bated breath for Ferguson’s next big role. And while she impressed in The Greatest Showman, there was not yet a standout role that would do justice to Ferguson’s overwhelming screen presence.

But maybe being cast in the Men in Black spin-off is a good start.

Y the Last Man TV show cast

The Y the Last Man TV show cast has a new addition, and there’s a pretty good chance he won’t stick around very long. Timothy Hutton has joined the series, inspired by the comic from Brian K. Vaughan and Pia GuerraY is set in a world where all living mammals with a Y chromosome have died, with the exception of an escape artist named Yorrick and his Capuchin monkey, Ampersand. Since Hutton is playing neither Yorrick nor his monkey, don’t expect him to make it into the second season.
