If you were a child of the '80s, you likely spent some time with "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?" the first in a series of best-selling, educational and actually pretty entertaining video games that mixed history and geography in the guise of a spyhunt. The basic premise was that you had to catch the dastardly Carmen Sandiego and her V.I.L.E. henchmen by answering a bunch of clues about the locations in the world where they could be hiding. The video game was eventually turned into the awesome '90s kids educational game show, and of course Hollywood came knocking. Disney tried to do something with the property in the '90s with Sandra Bullock but it never went anywhere, but now someone different is gonna ruin another childhood staple.

Jennifer Lopez is at a bizarre crossroads in her career, where she's currently famous for formerly being a superstar, because at any rate, no one wants to see her in movies or listen to her music. Her last few efforts on the big screen -- "The Back-Up Plan," "El cantate" and "Bordertown" -- were outright duds. While on the music fromt, despite having a hit single with "On The Floor," no one bought her album "Love?" with only 183,000 copies sold to date a far cry from her previous effort "Brave" (650,000 copies) and leagues away from the era when she was moving units in the millions. But that being said, she's still a brand, an "American Idol" host and a hugely influential and popular figure in the Latino community and above all, there is still a curiosity factor about Jenny from the block that for whatever reason piques the pop culture mind. But movie execs are dumb, and while Lopez is getting another shot at a couple of upcoming movies, she will not be toplining as she did back in her "Maid In Manhattan"/"The Wedding Planner" days.
