After recently signing her first-look deal with Netflix, Jennifer Lopez is now all set to star and co-produce Netflix's upcoming sci-fi thriller movie Atlas as per a report on Deadline. The sci-fi film will be helmed by Rampage fame director Brad Peyton. Aron Eli Coleite will be penning down the script based on Leo Sandarian's original script.

The film focuses on the story of Atlas, a woman fighting for humanity in a future when an AI soldier has determined the only way to end war is to end humanity. In order to outsmart this rogue AI soldier, Atlas is set to work with the one thing she fears most — another AI.

L-R: Jennifer Lopez and Brad Peyton.

“I’m so honoured to be working with Jennifer, Elaine and the rest of the team at Nuyorican Productions along with our partners Joby and Tory at Safehouse,” Peyton expressed in a statement given to Deadline. “Having the chance to direct Jennifer in the title role of this movie is a dream come true, as I know she’ll bring the incredible strength, depth and authenticity we’ve all come to admire from her work. Furthermore, Jeff and I are so excited to be back working with Scott, Ori and the entire team at Netflix. They have been nothing short of amazing to work with and we are blessed to have the opportunity to make another movie on the service,” he further added.

The film falls under the lineup for the recently signed first-look deal between Netflix and JLo's production house Nuyorican Productions where Lopez along with her production partner Goldsmith-Thomas and manager Medina will produce a bunch of films, television series, scripted and unscripted content, emphasising on projects supporting diverse female actors, writers and filmmakers.

Previously two projects have already been announced under the lineup, both starring Lopez which includes The Mother which is directed by Niki Carpo and The Cipher, based on the novel by Isabella Maldonado.
