Atlas, which has been directed by Brad Peyton, also stars Simu Liu, Sterling K Brown, Mark Strong, Abraham Popoola and Lana Parrilla, with the script being penned by Leo Sardarian and Aron Eli Coleite.

Peyton, who best known for directing San Andreas and Rampage, previously spoke about the opportunity to work with Lopez.

"Having the chance to direct Jennifer in the title role of this movie is a dream come true, as I know she'll bring the incredible strength, depth and authenticity we've all come to admire from her work," he praised.
