Jennifer Lopez's Mother: Cast, Release Date, and Everything We Know About Netflix Films

Jennifer Lopez's Mother: Cast, Release Date, and Everything We Know About Netflix Films ...

Jennifer Lopez has had an incredible year of love and happiness as she married Ben Affleck 20 years after their initial separation. She is set to finish off the wonderful year with a new film release, The Mother, which is the first installment of the star's three-movie partnership with Netflix.

The Mother may premiere its first trailer at Netflix's fan event Tudum on Saturday (September 24)! Last February, a super small teaser of the film was included in Netflix' 2022 Movie Preview Trailer, where Jennifer can be seen on a fishing boat on a remote location, where she says, "Tonight is movie night."

Before you dive into The Mother, let's take a deep breather. HollywoodLife has collated all you need to know about Jennifer's critically acclaimed film, including the release date, cast, and more.

What Is the Meaning of 'The Mother'?

Netflix's synopsis states that: "Years ago, a deadly assassin was forced to flee her only daughter, but years later, the female assassin returns her order to protect her daughter from some extremely dangerous men."

According to Deadline, the action-packed thriller is "in the spirit of the Luc Besson classic The Professional." That's quite correct, considering that The Professional saw a former assassin teaching his hitman craft to a young girl (Natalie Portman in her star-making role).

Who Is In the Cast?

According to Variety, J.Lo is the main star of Amazon's Sound of Metal. She plays the daughter she is risking it all to protect. Omari Hardwick, who starred in Zach Snyder's Army of the Dead, will play one of the bad guys, as well as Gael Garca Bernal, star of such hits as "Y Tu Mama Tambien," and "Mozart in the Jungle."

What Team Is Behind The Project?

According to Deadline, Lovecraft Country's creator Misha Green wrote the original script, which was rewritten by Straight Outta Compton's Andrea Berloff. The Mother will be directed by Niki Caro, well-known for Disney's Mulan remake, The Zookeeper's Wife, and Whale Rider. Jennifer is also working as a producer for Nuyorican Productions.

When Will 'The Mother' Makes His Appearance?

The Mother's premiere has yet to be set; the Netflix Tudum fan event on September 24 might shed light on the mystery. As far as we know, it should be released by the end of 2022.

Is There Any Footage So Far?

The Tudum event on Saturday may be unusual, as there has been no footage released as of yet, with the exception of the minor tease previously mentioned (above), and the event's organizers are releasing further footage.

What to Watch While You Wait

While waiting for The Mother to air a gritty tale, why not check out other notable films by Jennifer. Check her out in Hustlers, The Boy Next Door, and her star-making role alongside George Clooney in 1998's Out of Sight.
