Zeta-Jones to play drug lord in 'The Godmother'

Los Angeles: Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is all set to play a drug kingpin in the true story crime movie 'The Godmother'.

Directed by Norwegian helmer Eva Srhaug, Zeta-Jones will star as Griselda Blanco, the first and only woman to rise to the higher echelons of Colombia's Medellin drug cartel, reports suggest.

Blanco was a fearsome figure at the center of the Miami drug wars of the 1970s and '80s.

Her reign of terror, in which she's suspected to have ordered hundreds of assassinations to stay in money and power, was so vicious and violent that it earned her the nicknames La Madrina, Black Widow, and the Cocaine Godmother.

Blanco was assassinated in Colombia in 2012.
