Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez have already appeared together in a music video and at the 2005 Grammys. But now the superstar married couple is going to star alongside one another on the big screen -- in 'El Cantante.'
The movie tells the life story of Hector Lavoe (played by Anthony) who popularized the Puerto Rican salsa movement in 1975 in the United States. After lifelong battles with booze and narcotics, Lavoe died in 1993. In a case of art imitating life, Lopez will play his wife -- and serve as a producer of the film.
We can all only hope that this project goes better for J.Lo than 'Gigli' and 'Jersey Girl' went with her previous beau, Ben Affleck.
