Jennifer Lopez shared a story from her Netflix thriller The Mother filming in Vancouver.
The Mother has been filming in Vancouver for a few weeks, occasionally shutting down traffic around Victory Square, where JLo has been spotted with a sniper rifle in the Easy Park Parkade.

With the help of an FBI agent (Omari Hardwick), they go on the run from dangerous criminals (Joseph Fiennes and Gael Garcia Bernal) from her violent past.
Director: Niki Caro (Mulan).

Jennifer Lopez was first spotted filming on Wednesday, October 6th, at what looks to be the Abbotsford International Airport.

Now that Jennifer Lopez has reunited with Ben Affleck, 17 years after she ended their engagement over bad behaviour in Vancouver, will we see the Bennifer sequel Bennifer 2.0 here?
There is a scheduling conflict. Ben Affleck is shooting his own thriller Hypnotic in Austin, Texas until mid-November. But the couple reconnect on weekends.
