Sources are saying there is a battle brewing between Jennifer Lopez
and the legendary Rosie Perez
over who will own the film rights of Sonia Sotomayor
, the first Latina appointed to the US Supreme Court.
The National Enquirer
says (yeah, I know):
“Rosie resents Jennifer going after the project because she says she would have wanted to make the movie whether Sotomayor was confirmed or not,” the source adds. “(Lopez) hosted a dinner party for Justice Sotomayor right after her confirmation. It was to butter her up because Lopez thinks a film about her life story would be huge. Considering this is Hollywood, before its over, there may be two film versions of Sonia Sotomayor’s life.”
Well, while I think both are talented, I think Jennifer Lopez is made for cutesy romantic comedies... the days of Selena
seem like a lifetime ago for Lopez.
Rosie Perez is an Oscar nominee, a stone cold actress and a pioneer for women of color in film. To play the lifestory of Sotomayor requires someone with range and passion -- my vote goes to Rosie!
Who would you like to see play Sonia Sotomayor?
