The cinematic universe of wedding movies starring Jennifer Lopez is constantly expanding, and she’s adding another one to her slate. She’s set to star in the action-comedy Shotgun Wedding alongside Armie Hammer.

This exciting project centers on Darcy and Tom, who are getting cold feet about their upcoming destination wedding after gathering their families in the same spot. The whole situation gets even worse after they’re all taken hostage in the middle of their wedding party preparations.

Lionsgate will be in charge of producing the project, and their president of production, Erin Westerman, described Lopez and Hammer as the perfect pairing for this project because they’re “both incredibly funny actors that can also deliver on the action.”

Lopez is no stranger to wedding-themed movies, and her filmography includes rom-com classics The Wedding Planner and Monster-in-Law. She’s also set to star in the upcoming movie Marry Me, which centers on a pop star who ties the knot with a complete stranger after leaving her cheating boyfriend.
