Vancouver residents may spot Jennifer Lopez filming the Netflix thriller The Mother in the upcoming weeks starting on October 13, 2021.

Is that Jenny from the block...or is that Jenny from the block? 

A video circulating on social media that shows Jennifer Lopez and her stunt double on a film set in Vancouver has viewers doing double-takes. 

The popular singer, actress, producer, and dancer is in town filming a Netflix thriller called The Mother that also stars Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare In Love), Omari Hardwick (Power), and Gael Garcia Bernal (Y Tu Mamá También). 

Lopez plays an assassin who comes out of hiding to protect her daughter that she gave up while she was on the run from dangerous men, according to Variety.

A New Westminster resident shared a video of the star and her double going over a scene they were shooting. He shared an image of the double yawning, too. 

Jennifer Lopez to continue filming in Vancouver

Filming is slated to continue over the course of several days in a couple of locations in the city including 200 West Hastings and 150 West Pender from approximately 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. from Oct. 12 to 15. 

One of the scenes calls for "high-speed vehicle movement" on the 200 block of West Hastings, the 400 and 500 blocks of Cambie St., and the "lane south of 100 West Pender." Another scene calls for "simulated gunfire." 

There will be traffic closures but bus, pedestrian, and bike traffic will be permitted when the actors aren't filming.
