Jennifer Lopez's 'Second Act' Moves to December

The romantic comedy, directed by Peter Segal, stars Lopez as a woman embarking on a new career.

STX is moving the release date of Jennifer Lopez's upcoming romantic comedy Second Act from Nov. 21 to Dec. 14. Instead of battling it out in the crowded Thanksgiving corridor, the movie will now stake a claim in mid-December in hopes of playing through the holidays and into the new year.

On its new date, the film will face off against Universal’s Peter Jackson-produced fantasy pic Mortal Engines and Sony’s animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse.

Written by Justin Zackham and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Second Act, which is said to be in the vein of 2002's Maid in Manhattan, stars Lopez as a 40-year-old woman who embarks on a new career on Madison Avenue.

Directed by Peter Segal, the film also stars Leah Remini, Vanessa Hudgens, Treat Williams and Milo Ventimiglia and was produced by Lopez, Goldsmith-Thomas, Zackham and Benny Medina.
