Jennifer has teamed up with choreographer and director-producer Kenny Ortega and James Larosa, creator of VH1’s cheerleading drama series Hit the Floor, for “The Edge”, a dance drama in development at Fox.
Written and executive produced by Larosa, The Edge is set in the LA dance world, where it’s survival of the fittest. And no one is more fit than this ensemble of ambitious, sometimes ruthless women and men who have trained their whole lives to be the best and won’t let anything—or anyone—get in their way.
Jennifer attended on Saturday September 10th The Toronto International Film Festival.

Manhattan Night is the story of Porter Wren, a New York City tabloid writer with an appetite for scandal. On the beat he sells murder, tragedy and anything that passes for the truth. At home he is a model family man, devoted to his loving wife. But when a seductive stranger asks him to dig into the unsolved murder of her filmmaker husband Simon, he can’t resist. In this modern version of a classic film noir, we follow Porter as he is drawn into a very nasty case of sexual obsession and blackmail – one that threatens his job, his marriage and his life.

Here’s some interesting production notes about the film:
“I finished reading the book Manhattan Nocturne, I knew I had to make it into a movie,” says director, screenwriter and producer Brian DeCubellis. That was back in 1999.
Four years later DeCubellis secured the film rights of the book. DeCubellis had a vision for the movie from that initial reading. “I had made an outline for the movie while reading the book four years earlier. I just pulled that outline out and started writing it. The first draft came very quickly and was to be the main structure which got updated many times over the years.”
