Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?” Apparently wherever Jennifer Lopez is. The singer-actress has reportedly been pegged to play the retro computer game and TV character from the Carmen Sandiego franchise in a new action movie!

According to Deadline, J.Lo is producing and possibly starring in the live-action film remake of the iconic educational franchise, which followed the ever-elusive international detective all around the world and through time.

The film — set to be co-produced by Lopez, her Nuyorican Production partners Benny Medina and Simon Fields, along with Underground Films’ Nick Osbourne, Trevor Engelson and Devin Andre — will tell the story of the international agent-turned-most-wanted thief. The producers will work with Walden Media, which has been a part of such classic movies as the ‘Narnia‘ franchise, ‘Bridge to Terabithia‘ and ‘Charlotte’s Web.’

The first ‘Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego’ educational game was released in 1985, and inspired a children’s game show on PBS that aired from 1991 to 1995. Reportedly, Disney previously optioned a film incarnation of the franchise with actress Sandra Bullock in mind for the lead role. The project never took off, but hopefully the alleged Lopez version will come into fruition and hit the silver screen!

Do you think J.Lo will make a good Carmen Sandiego? She already has the over-sized wide-brimmed hat thing down!
