Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Hanging out with Jennifer Lopez, evidently! Deadline.com reports that Lopez has partnered with Walden Media to bring the elusive, globe-trotting criminal to the big screen. 

 

The Carmen Sandiego character originated in an education computer game before landing an animated series. Here's the plan for her upcoming live-action movie adventure:

 

When the ACME agency’s greatest detective Carmen Sandiego becomes the world’s greatest thief, it’s up to her former partner to follow her clues and track her down. Their cat-and-mouse game leads the partner to confront a greater mystery: Is Carmen really a thief or a hero?

 

At this point, Lopez is only attached to produce the project, though Deadline reports executives hope it will become a starring vehicle for the singer-actress, who recently wrapped production on What to Expect When You're Expecting.
