Jennifer Lopez and Armie Hammer Comedy In The Works!
Ok, Jennifer Lopez fans we are finally getting a new movie from her since her most recent film Hustlers and Second Act. Read on since JLo’s new leading man will be the handsome Armie Hammer…
CelebnMovies247.com reports that Jennifer Lopez and Armie Hammer are set to star alongside each other in ‘Shotgun Wedding’.
Jennifer Lopez and Armie Hammer will play couple Darcy and Tom in the upcoming comedy directed by Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect).
Jason Moore will be in the driver’s seat for the movie, with Mark Hammer and Liz Meriwether on script duties. Ryan Reynolds has received an executive producer credit, per Deadline.
The plot follows the pair as they gather their lovable but very opinionated families for the ultimate destination wedding just as the couple begins 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.
The flick is set to start filming in 2021.
Currently, Armie can be seen starring alongside Lily James (Mrs de Winter) in Netflix’s romantic thriller ‘Rebecca’ as Maxim de Winter. Hammer can also be seen in ‘Death On The Nile’ coming out in December.
Jennifer will next be seen in ‘Marry Me’, which is slated for release on February 12, 2021.
Lopez admitted it was tough for her to land film roles at the start of her career, but she had to break the stereotype casting to become the leading lady she is today.
The 51-year-old star revealed:
At that time, there wasn’t, and it’s still not great now just for a caveat, but back then, it was just like, ‘How am I going to be an actress?’ And in my mind, I was like, ‘I want to play the girl, the woman.’ Right.
Just not the Latin woman in the Latin role where you think I should play the cook or the nanny or something like that. That I wanted to be the lead, I wanted to just represent for everybody and make everybody see that it didn’t matter if you were Latin or black or Asian or whatever, you’re a girl, you’re a human being. And so there was those challenges of breaking through that.
