Jennifer Lopez developing 'Carmen Sandiego' film with Walden Media
New film based on the bestselling computer games and '90s TV series
Though she's currently ramping up for the eleventh season of "American Idol" (and perhaps smarting over the mediocre sales of her last studio album, "Love?"), Jennifer Lopez is still keeping one eye on her film career, with a starring role in the upcoming rom-com "What to Expect When You're Expecting" opposite Cameron Diaz as well as the crime-thriller "Parker" with Jason Statham and Nick Nolte.

But will it make you want to buy a Fiat?
As noted by Deadline, which broke the story, Disney optioned the property in the late 1990s for Sandra Bullock to star, but a film never materialized.
The title character in the franchise is a former detective-turned-world's greatest spy who is tracked by her former partner across the globe in a prolonged game of cat and mouse. The series spans a line of computer games, board games, books and other media and has been adapted into three separate TV shows over the years.
