Jennifer Lopez and Armie Hammer are set to star in the action-comedy ‘Shotgun Wedding’ for Lionsgate.
The film follows Lopez as Darcy and Hammer as Tom, a couple who gathers their families together for a destination wedding. Things start to go south, however, after the two get cold feet. But that’s not the worst thing about the wedding from hell — the ceremony goes completely off the rails when the entire party is taken, hostage.
The synopsis reads: “‘Til Death Do Us Part’ takes on a whole new meaning in this hilarious, adrenaline-fueled adventure as Darcy and Tom must save their loved ones — if they don’t kill each other first.”
