Jennifer Lopez to Star in Rom-Com MARRY ME from STX Entertainment

Jennifer Lopez to Star in Rom-Com MARRY ME from STX Entertainment
Jennifer Lopez is set to reunite with STX Entertainment for the studio's upcoming romantic comedy "Marry Me". Based on a graphic novel by Bobby Crosby, the film will star Lopez as a pop superstar who moments before marrying her rock star fiancé at Madison Square Garden, finds out that he was cheating with her assistant. She then proceeds to have a spontaneous meltdown on stage and picks a random math teacher out of the crowd to marry instead.

The film will be directed by TV helmer Kat Coiro ("Shameless", "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") from a script by John Rogers ("Transformers") and Tami Sagher ("30 Rock"), with a rewrite by Harper Dill. It is being described as an "exploration of relationships, expectations and destiny" and a cross between "Notting Hill" and "The Proposal". Owen Wilson is in talks to join the cast as the math teacher.

This is the third collaboration between STX, Lopez and producers Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina, following last year's "Second Act" and the upcoming "Hustlers". The latter will be released on Setember 13, 2019 and also stars Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart, Julia Stiles and Madeline Brewer.

Lopez is also set to star in the TV live production of the Broadway musical "Bye Bye Birdie!".
