She looks so much like her mom that this is pretty much a no-brainer: Janney "Chiquis" Rivera has been cast to play her late mother, Jenni, in a new film being made about the singer.

Chiquis, 28, is the oldest daughter of the Mexican-American singer, actress and reality star, who died in a plane crash in December 2012 at the age of 43.

The biopic, which is being made in collaboration with the Rivera family, will mark her acting debut and she is reportedly prepping for the role by taking singing and acting lessons.

"It would be an honor to portray my mother in a movie," she told Univision. "But … for me, whoever is fine, as long as it is done with a lot of love and respect for my mother."
