Jennifer Lopez has confirmed she will star alongside third husband Marc Anthony in upcoming movie WHO KILLED HECTOR LAVOE?

The Latino singer will take the lead role of Hector Lavoe - the man who brought salsa music to the US in 1975 - while Lopez will play his onscreen wife.

She says, "It's the story of a singer and I'll play his wife."

Lopez had previously ruled herself out of starring in the movie when she bought the rights last year (04).

She is continuing her taste for mixing business and pleasure - she appeared opposite then boyfriend Ben Affleck in 2003 flop Gigli.
