‘Tunnel’ vision for J. Lo

Lopez connects with 'Bridge'

Jennifer Lopez will topline New Line’s “Bridge and Tunnel,” portraying a stock trader who relies on a suburban teen who day-trades on his home PC.

Production on the romantic comedy is expected to begin in late spring, with Tribeca’s Jane Rosenthal and Robert De Niro producing and Greg Berlanti directing. Studio’s still looking to cast the male lead.

Project will reunite Lopez with New Line following last year’s “Monster-in-Law.”

Berlanti, who created the WB series “Jack & Bobby” and “Everwood,” signed on last spring to direct and rewrite the script with Michael Green. Jonathan Greenberg, Jonathan Lisco and C. Jay Cox penned the original script. Berlanti’s partner, Mickey Liddell, will exec produce.
