Deadine is reporting that Jennifer Lopez is teaming with Rampage director Brad Peyton for Atlas, a sci-fi thriller set up at Netflix.
As per the trade, Atlas will see Lopez as “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, Atlas must work with the one thing she fears most — another AI.”
“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,” said Peyton. “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 and I are so excited to be back working with Scott, Ori and 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.”
Atlas falls under Lopez and Nuyorican Productions’ recent first look deal with Netflix, and follows on from the recent announcement from the streamer that the star will also team with Mulan helmer Niki Caro for an action thriller entitled The Mother.
