Carmen Sandiego Movie Coming With Jennifer Lopez As Producer

Posted: Updated:

Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Potentially on a screen near you thanks to Jennifer Lopez.

Walden Media has acquired rights to turn Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? into a feature film, reports Deadline Hollywood. And Lopez will be involved.

It's doubtful the actress will play the titular character though. Jenny From The Block's only role will be that of producer.

According to Deadline, the movie's concept will be "'National Treasure' meets 'The Thomas Crown Affair,'" and will feature the super sleuth tangled up in a high-profile heist.

"Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?" debuted in 1985 as a computer game and book. Over the years more games and books developed, and the series is still used as a teaching tool in many elementary schools nationwide. Fans will even remember the PBS gameshow that aired on PBS from 1991 to 1995.

In the late 1990s Disney looked into creating a Carmen Sandiego movie starring Sandra Bullock, but it never got off the ground.
