Jennifer Lopez appears to be shaking things up.
Following her departure from Fox’s American Idol, JLo has now signed with a new agency, Creative Artists Agency (CAA).
The singer/actress had previously been with CAA, along with many other agencies in fact, and has now returned, leaving United Talent Agency.
She will now be represented by Jenna Adler, Kevin Huvane, and Hylda Queally at UTA.
Her publicist recently released a statement saying, Lopez switched over to CAA “to focus more time on film projects, her music and other ventures.”
UTA is said to have really helped launch Lopez’s career, landing her the role of Selena in the movie following the Tejano singer’s rise to fame and tragic death. However, she left the agency only to return in 2008, but according to Deadline, UTA did not handle Lopez’s 8-month world tour which prevented her from signing on to more movie/TV projects.
Next up for Lopez in the 2013 movie Parker based on the crime/thriller literary series written by Donald E. Westlake under the pseudonym Richard Stark. Jason Statham stars as the title character, along with Lopez, Nick Nolte, and Michael Chiklis. Parker is an adaption of the novel Flashfire.
