Jennifer Lopez is heading back to the silver screen in January. The singer will put on her acting hat as she stars in the new thriller 'The Boy Next Door.'

JLo plays a high school teacher and recent divorcee whose husband cheated on her and walked out on the family. Set to rebuild her life and move on, she meets Noah, a teenage orphan who recently moved in with his uncle next door. With many coincidental meetings and the obvious sexual tension between the two, one night all bets are off and Jenny has a hot night with the 18-year-old.

Realizing the mistake she made, Jenny becomes part of a twisted obsession, which turns her life upside down. Not a stranger to these action-packed thrillers, JLo will do everything she can to keep her family safe. But will she be able to get away from Noah?

'The Boy Next Door' arrives in theaters Jan. 23, 2015.
