The new Netflix original movie, The Mother, stars Jennifer Lopez and will release soon. Here is everything we know about the project so far.

Starring Jennifer Lopez, The Mother will feature an assassin come out of retirement to protect her daughter, very akin to John Wick.

This will be the second consecutive action movie for Lopez, who is just coming off the release of 2022’s action-comedy Shotgun Wedding. But The Mother promises to be a much more serious movie than Shotgun Wedding.
