Back in October 2018, it was announced that Actors Jennifer Lopez and Armie Hammer are coming together to star in an upcoming action-comedy titled, Shotgun Wedding. The film will be helmed by Jason Moore and the screenplay will be by Mark Hammer and Liz Meriwether. Now, amid the social media controversy over alleged private messages, Armie has exited the project and will be recast.
A spokesperson from the production told Entertainment Weekly, "Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film and we support him in his decision."
In a statement recently, Armie addressed the allegations of allegedly sending disturbing messages to several women on Instagram. The women had claimed they were in sexual relationships. He said, "I'm not responding to these bulls— claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic. Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I'm grateful to them for that."
Along with George Dewey, Ryan Reynolds is executive producing the film. James Myers and Scott O’Brien will oversee the production for Lionsgate.
