Meet the newest celebrity couple- Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson, at least on screen guys. The multi-talented 49 year old JLo and the 50 year old Wilson are teaming up for an upcoming Rom-Com 'Marry Me'. This JLo and Wilson rom-com is somehow making us a little nostalgic! Remember them in Anaconda? But, the world won't be on your side if you found that romantic lol!
So, "Marry Me" is based on a graphic novel by Bobby Crosby and focuses on a pop star (Lopez), who, moments before marrying her rock-star fiance at Madison Square Garden, finds out that he cheated on her with her assistant. She breaks down on the stage and picks a random man (Wilson) out of the crowd to marry instead. It was described as 'Notting hill' coming up close with 'The Proposal'.
The movie will mark the third collaboration between the entertainment company STX, Lopez, producers Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina, following 2018's "Second Act" and the upcoming "Hustlers" which is currently in production.
While, Wilson is in the final negotiations to join the movie. Kat Coiro is directing the film with the screenplay written by John Rogers and Tami Sagher and a rewrite by Harper Dill.
"Owen Wilson is a hilarious and charismatic addition to the film and the perfect person to play opposite Jen in a role that was quite literally made for her." said Adam Fogelson, STX Films Chairman.
The filming of the flick is likely to begin this fall.
