The American actress and singer Jennifer López will shoot on the Island at the beginning of 2022. The capital of Gran Canaria is one of the locations chosen for the filming, more specifically, the surroundings of the San Telmo park, where the film crew is scheduled to disembark in the first fortnight of January.

The also composer and businesswoman announced last June that she had reached a global collaboration agreement with Netflix to star in the science fiction film Atlas for this digital giant, according to Efe.

In addition to this project, it has emerged that López and Netflix have two others underway: the action thriller The Mother, directed by Niki Caro (Mulan, 2020); and the film The Cipher, which will adapt the novel by Isabella Maldonado.

Added to this are two more advanced works. On the one hand, he will premiere with Maluma the romantic comedy Marry Me on February 11, 2022, just to coincide with the Valentine’s Day, after living countless postponements due to the coronavirus pandemic. On the other hand, he will shoot Shotgun Wedding, another romantic comedy that he was going to star in with Armie Hammer until the actor was fired from the project due to a series of sex scandals that spread on social networks. It has not yet emerged whether the latter will be the project that has found its ideal setting in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

The international star joins others such as Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard, who shot the film Aliados in the capital. The city has environments that can recreate cities from the 16th to the 21st century, a circumstance that has been used by numerous productions, both national and foreign for film or television.

Now it will be Jennifer López, who, as has happened with events such as the Venice Film Festival, may be accompanied by her partner, the actor and director Ben Affleck.
