Jennifer Lopez is breaking new ground in the entertainment industry by releasing a movie musical titled 'This Is Me…Now: A Love Story'.
Scheduled to debut during Valentine's week, the film offers a surrealistic and escapist journey through the life of a hopeless romantic. Inspired by Lopez's personal experiences, including romance, break-ups, reconnection, and marriage with Ben Affleck, the musical serves as a sequel to her 2002 record 'This Is Me...Then'.
During a global press conference covered by ETimes, Lopez shared insights into the film and her approach to storytelling through music. She credited director Dave Meyers for understanding her vision and serving as her partner throughout the project. Additionally, she expressed gratitude towards her husband, Ben Affleck, for supporting her artistic endeavors beyond just the music of the album that inspired the film.
'This Is Me...Now: A Love Story' boasts impressive costumes, breathtaking choreography, and star-studded cameos from celebrities like Post Malone, Jay Shetty, Trevor Noah, Derek Hough, and Sadhguru, among others. Lopez candidly acknowledged the challenges of incorporating numerous celebrity cameos into the film, highlighting the logistical hurdles encountered during the process.
Director Dave Meyers elaborated on the complexities of orchestrating the celebrity cameos, explaining that many were shot separately and required significant editing due to script changes and the guests' unfamiliarity with their roles. Lopez humorously recalled reassuring her celebrity guests on set and persuading them to trust her vision for the film.
Despite the challenges, Lopez expressed satisfaction with the positive reception the film has received thus far, emphasizing the gratification of knowing that audiences love it. With anticipation building for its release, 'This Is Me...Now' promises to deliver an unforgettable cinematic experience blending music, storytelling, and star power.
