JLO said in a statement:

"I’ve been forever fascinated by the story of Griselda Blanco and jumped at the chance to play her on screen," Lopez said in a statement. "She is all things we look for in storytelling and dynamic characters – notorious, ambitious, conniving, chilling."

"In a genre dominated by legendary kingpins, I’m eager to shine a spotlight on this anti-hero and excited to partner with STX for the third time so we can bring this compelling, complicated story to life," she continued.
