New Roles for J.Lo, Affleck, Hartnett
Their movie, "Gigli," a crime comedy directed by Martin Brest ("Beverly Hills Cop"), won't be released until next year, but Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are already discussing teaming up again, notes the Hollywood Reporter. Their next one is likely to be "Jersey Girl" for writer-director Kevin Smith ("Dogma"), says the trade paper. Affleck, 29, would play Ollie Trinke, whose life is turned upside down when a new love (Lopez, 31) and her 6-year-old daughter enter the picture. Production is scheduled to begin later this year. Meanwhile, "Black Hawk Down" and "40 Days, 40 Nights" heartthrob Josh Hartnett, 23, goes to work in October shooting the psychological thriller "Wicker Park," an English-language remake of the 1996 French movie "L'Appartement," reports Variety. The plot involves an obsessed man's search for a lost love and how he manages to find an unexpected admirer. The French version was never released in the U.S. And Gwyneth Paltrow, 29, will star as Sylvia Plath ("The Bell Jar") in an as-yet-untitled biopic about the tragic American poet. The film will focus on the rocky marital relationship between Plath, who committed suicide in 1963, and Ted Hughes, a British poet laureate who died in 1998, says the Hollywood Reporter.
