Can't wait till she films this. Truly the only saving grace in acting this past decade. She better not try to juggle 8million things while she preps and films this. I want Jen to focus solely on this. Study Griselda, nail her mannerisms and her way of talking, breathe her, become her. She aint gonna be able to give 100% if her attention is divided on doing random interviews, photoshoots, performing for rich CEO's overseas, filming other shows and going to pointless red carpet events etc..

Still on Elaine talked about it a couple of weeks ago she said they're filming it in 2018 but I don't know when she can, with WOD, Vegas and Sob unless they don't film a 4th season of Shades or at the end of the year if BBB is canceled.

I really can't wait for that movie.. but since the movie will be shot in 2018, they could announce it later (it was too early imo)

Sure hope she doesn't film this while flying back and forth for Vegas shows!! This type of role needs her total attention and can't be treated as just another side project being fit into her crazy schedule!

You hoes got me excited when I saw the thread bumped. Uggh. It worries me she won't have time to film this. Like she's gonna do another season of WOD filmed January then Vegas shows then SOB in summer. I don't want Jen filming 2 different roles concurrently. And then what about AAA and new music. Where is the time?

It's her passion project, she'll go all in. Not really worried about that. Don't see it filming before early 2019 though. I agree that they made a mistake announcing it so early, but I guess that's because there's 2 other similar projects in the works.

Let's not forget that her Spanish album is also her "passion" project and we all see how well that's going...there's no such thing as a passion project when you have 100 projects at once.

As it was mentioned above, I really hope she dedicates herself 100% to this project. It would require the level of commitment she had for Selena. She LIVED Selena and immersed herself into that role. This role can be great for her but she can't be distracted with silly side projects like WOD..

She's been pursuing this role for yearssss. I'm sure she'll be 100% dedicated to it. WOD takes up a month or less every year. And it's far from silly, it's a massive hit, and I feel like it has the potential to get her an Emmy nom next year if they do a decent campaign.

Hope she gains weight for the role. Critics love seeing actors do that. Maybe gain 20lbs

Whether we like it or not judging tables keep people relevant. World of Dance is important for Jen, not only does it add a successful piece of TV to her growing producing resume, but it keeps her in America's living room.

She could nominated for an Emmy with World of Dance and Griselda. I heard that they have questioned her for Griselda, because they didn't think she had the acting chops. They were actually considering Catherine Zeta-Jones to be in the movie, but she didn't look like the person being betrayed. Let's hope that she does well and makes the most out of the roll.

A two hour movie won’t be enough tbh. I hope they will change it into a mini series. :pray

And it should be in Spanish!!!

Really guys, leave WOD alone. It was huge success for her and her company and it takes her just a couple of days to film it.

Can't wait for Griselda, but I dont see it coming anytime soon.

A mini series would be great but even more time consuming for her. If they get great directors/writers this could really be an amazing project for her.

And no to Spanish, especially on HBO...

Why not? It will make the movie/show more authentic.

Netflix has Spanish-language originals (Narcos!). I’m sure HBO will follow.

^yes, Narcos is amazing but it has more chances of being successful if it’s in English..I think. Didn’t Griselda speak English anyways? Or am I making that up? Watching Cocaine Cowboys 2 and seeing what a crazy evil bitch she was gets me so excited for this role. Really hope she kills it.
