Jennifer Lopez and Armie Hammer have signed on to star in Lionsgate’s upcoming action-comedy, Shotgun Wedding. Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect) will direct from a screenplay by Mark Hammer and Liz Meriwether. Ryan Reynolds is among the names producing the film.
Deadline reports the synopsis:
The film follows Darcy (Lopez) and Tom (Hammer), who gather their lovable but very opinionated families for the ultimate destination wedding just as the couple begin to get cold feet. And if that wasn’t enough of a threat to the celebration, suddenly everyone’s lives are in danger when the entire party is taken hostage.
Erin Westerman, President of Production for Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group, said of the casting news, “Jennifer and Armie’s irresistible magnetism, separately and together, make them the perfect pairing for this action comedy. They are both incredibly funny actors that can also deliver on the action, but what sets this movie apart is the way their infectious chemistry commands the screen. You can’t take your eyes off them.”
They are definitely magnetic actors who are a lot of fun to watch onscreen. I’m looking forward to this movie. How about you?
