Jennifer Lopez will play Colombian drug lord, but these women might be a better fit
Jennifer Lopez is set to star as the late Colombian drug lord Griselda Blanco in an HBO film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Blanco earned the nickname of “The Cocaine Godmother” in the 1970s and 1980s after reportedly ordering up to 200 murders and moving around 300 kilos of cocaine a month. She was sentenced to ten years in prison before being deported to Colombia in 2004. Years later, Blanco was shot and killed in the head in a drive-by shooting.
“I've been fascinated by the life of this corrupt and complicated woman for many years,” said Lopez. “The idea of teaming with HBO felt like the perfect fit for finally bringing Griselda's story to life.”
Blanco was the subject of the drug documentary “Cocaine Cowboys” in 2006.
After news broke that the Shades of Blue actress would bring the story of “The Cocaine Godmother” back to life, social media users began to express their disapproval.
