Jennifer Lopez has partnered with Walden Media to make a live-action film based on Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?, the computer game used as a teaching tool in more than half of U.S. elementary schools. 

Carmen Sandiego is also a popular animated series. Though there has been some speculation that Lopez would play the title character in the film version, the singer and American Idol judge is officially attached as the project's co-producer with Nuyorican Productions, her development team. This is not the first time Carmen Sandiego has been considered as a feature film – Disney optioned the property more than 10 years ago, but the project lapsed.
