Mayor: JLo, Anthony want to build PR film studio

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - August 26, 2010

Fajardo Mayor Anibal Melendez said Thursday that the singer-actors - both born in New York to Puerto Rican families - want to build a state-of-the-art soundstage in Fajardo to attract more A-list movies and TV shows to the U.S. island.

Melendez says the proposal for Fajardo is still in its infancy. But he said Lopez and Anthony voiced "a lot of enthusiasm" for the project when he met with them recently in Miami.

Publicists for the couple decline comment.

In 2006, Lopez and Anthony teamed up for a movie on Puerto Rican salsa legend Hector Lavoe.
