Jennifer Lopez to Star in Live Action Carmen Sandiego Film?
Walden Media has acquired the rights to Carmen Sandiego to make a live action film of the character (WHY?). According to Deadline, Jennifer Lopez has signed on to produce and might decide to star in the film. The plot line would be as follows:
When the ACME agency’s greatest detective Carmen Sandiego becomes the world’s greatest thief, it’s up to her former partner to follow her clues and track her down. Their cat-and-mouse game leads the partner to confront a greater mystery: Is Carmen really a thief or a hero? The property originated as an educational computer game before it was turned into an animated TV series.
I remember playing the Carmen Sandiego computer game for hours as a kid. I used to watch the game show too. Yet I remember being turned off by the cartoon and I do not have high hopes for this film. Smh. Hollywood is truly running out of ideas.
