Jennifer Lopez is fighting to make her version of CARMEN after a five-year wait.

The singer/actress hopes to star in a movie version of BIZET's opera after she has completed promotional work on upcoming films BORDERTOWN and AN UNFINISHED LIFE.

She says, "I've been trying to get Carmen made for years. It's a dream."

Lopez won't be the first modern diva to play Carmen - Beyonce Knowles portrayed the famous gypsy in 2001 TV movie CARMEN: A HIP-HOPERA.
