Jennifer Lopez is going back to her roots. Her film acting roots, that is.

After a long hiatus to pursue other projects, Jennifer Lopez will be returning to the big screen to star (and produce!) a new romantic comedy, a genre she excelled in with titles like The Wedding Planner, Monster-in-Law, and Maid in Manhattan.

Called Second Act, the rom-com is being teased with the following description by The Wrap: It will follow "a big box store employee who reinvents her life and gets the chance to prove to Madison Avenue that street smarts are as valuable as a college degree." In other words, it has echoes of classic romantic comedies like Mike Nichols' Working Girl.

While J.Lo has pursued many different projects over her career, her initial break came in the biopic Selena, a part she parlayed into roles in other serious films like Out of Sight with George Clooney and the thrilled The Cell. There were stumbles along the way, i.e. Gigli with then boyfriend Ben Affleck.

More recently, her lighter film work has included The Back-up Plan and What to Expect When You're Expecting, although those didn't achieve the same amount of success at the box office.

"There are so many things I love about this project and script,” Lopez said in a statement that announced Second Act. “People try to put women to sleep at a certain age. 'Second Act' is a story that empowers the every woman to do more, to be more, and not limit their dreams. I am thrilled to...continue to create and empower the female audience."

Interestingly, the last time Lopez released a new album was in 2014, but she's been all over television with her small-screen roles. Currently, she's one of the three judges on NBC's well-received dance competition series World of Dance alongside Derek Hough and Ne-Yo, and she's also costarring in NBC's crime-drama Shades of Blue with Ray Liotta, which is in its third season.

Next year, she'll prove to be NBC's go-to star once again by headlining its Bye Bye Birdie! live musical.
