In the midst of her own real-life engagement to Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez is nearing a deal to slip on another engagement ring for a starring role in the New Line Cinema comedy "Monster-in-Law." Lopez is in early negotiations to star in the project, which centers on a girl who's set to marry the perfect guy until she meets his mother, the world's worst mother-in-law.

Lopez has two projects hitting theaters in the coming months: the Revolution Studios drama "Gigli" and the Miramax Films romantic comedy "Jersey Girl," both co-starring Affleck.

She will also appear in the upcoming Miramax drama "An Unfinished Life" opposite Robert Redford, the Miramax romantic comedy "Shall We Dance?" opposite Richard Gere, and the Columbia Pictures thriller "Tick Tock."

On the music front, Lopez is preparing to commercially release her new Epic single "I'm Glad." A CD version boasting a Paul Oakenfold remix arrives July 8, while a four-track 12" vinyl single will be released July 1.
