Jennifer Lopez looks ready to flex her muscles in the upcoming thriller The Mother. On Saturday, Netflix released the first trailer for the film directed by Niki Caro. Joseph Fiennes, Omari Hardwick, Gael García Bernal, Paul Raci and Lucy Paez join Lopez in the ensemble.
The film centers on a deadly female assassin (Lopez) who comes out of hiding to protect the daughter that she gave up years before, while on the run from dangerous men. While brief, the footage shown off today features Lopez training in a cabin in the woods right before segueing to taking on her adversaries in some high-octane action scenes, along with Lopez uttering the line, “If there’s trouble, come find me.”
The film is set to bow next May.
Misha Green penned the original screenplay, with Peter Craig handling the most recent revisions. Lopez and Elaine Goldsmith Thomas are producing for Nuyorican Productions with Roy Lee and Miri Yoon for Vertigo along with Green, Benny Medina and Marc Evans. Molly Allen is executive producing.
