Lopez wants to star opposite Anthony

Jennifer Lopez is planning to star in the screen version of Puerto Rican jazz superstar Hector Lavoe's life story - alongside new husband Marc Anthony.

J.Lo, 34, is keen to co-star with her salsa singer spouse in the big screen biopic, despite the critical mauling she received when she appeared opposite her previous beau Ben Affleck in Gigli last year.

Lopez says: "Lavoe's kind of like a Billie Holiday, a tragic singer. It's a love story between a husband and wife."
