Jennifer Lopez is set to star in the upcoming Netflix film Atlas after signing a first-look deal with the streaming giant.
Per a Deadline report, the singer and actress will also produce the science-fiction thriller, with Rampage helmer Brad Peyton taking over directorial duties.
Atlas centers on a woman (Lopez) fighting for the human race in a future where an AI soldier has determined that the only way war can be ended is for humanity to cease to exist.
In a bid to defeat the antagonistic AI, the heroine must overcome her fear and work with another AI as she takes a stand for the protection of the human race.
