J-Lo has been reincarnated as a hawt teacher in new low-budget thriller The Boy Next Door.

Lopez stars as Claire, a teacher whose husband routinely cheats on her and their son Kevin, leaving her emotionally vulnerable. Enter Noah, the definitely-not 16-year-old-boy who moves in with his uncle next door.

After befriending Kevin, Noah begins to muscle in on Claire, and one thing predictably leads to another. Things get complicated when Claire tries to shut the affair down and Noah becomes increasingly obsessive - hacking her computer and attempting to blackmail her.

Noah is played by Pretty Little Liars' Ryan Guzman, while Jen's husband from the block is John Corbett. Y'know, the guy most famous for being a vegetarian called "Ee-aan Mee-lluh" in My Big Fat Greek Wedding:

Fast & Furious director Rob Cohen is the man behind this one, which is written by Barbara Curry and produced by Blumhouse's low-budget subsidiary.

The Boy Next Door gets a U.S premiere January 23.
