There are few people on the planet more attractive than Jennifer Lopez and Armie Hammer, so it's not surprising they're joining forces for a new romantic comedy. "You can't take your eyes off them," Lionsgate's President of Production Erin Westerman said in a press release, which is somewhat of an understatement.
Shotgun Wedding, to be directed by Pitch Perfect's Jason Moore, will begin filming soon. Lopez and Hammer have their perfect destination wedding all planned out, but then start to second-guess their love once the festivities get underway. But their relationship will be tested even further when the wedding party and guests are taken hostage.
The action-comedy hails from writers Mark Hammer (Two Night Stand) and Liz Meriwether (creator of New Girl), and will be executive produced by Ryan Reynolds. This will be Lopez's second wedding-themed project of 2021, with Marry Me scheduled to hit theaters around Valentine's Day.
Production on Shotgun Wedding is slated to begin early next year, but as with any production affected by COVID-19, expect some delays.
