J Lo and Maluma's Rom-Com Finally Has a Release Date, but You're Going to Have to Wait a While
Production for Marry Me officially kicked off in 2019, and can we just take a moment to talk about the star-studded cast? The musical comedy stars Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson, Sarah Silverman, Chloe Coleman, and John Bradley, and it marks Maluma's first feature film. The movie is based on Bobby Crosby's graphic novel of the same name and is described as a cross between Notting Hill and A Star Is Born. It centres around Lopez's character finding out that her fiancé (Maluma) has been cheating on her with her assistant before she goes on to marry a random crowd member (Wilson) instead.
Lopez and Maluma gave fans a glimpse of what to expect back in October when they surprised concertgoers with a duet of "No Me Ames," which she originally recorded with ex-husband Marc Anthony, in New York City. The performance will actually double as a scene in the rom-com. Recently, Maluma and Lopez shared Instagram photos of a studio session together. Considering that the pair also collaborated on an album for the movie, they were likely working on songs for the film. "There's a whole — all new songs and all new music with it," Lopez revealed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in February. "So it's exciting." She added: "I think I have like six or eight songs and Maluma does two or three."
Marry Me is set to hit cinemas in the US on Valentine's Day in 2021, so in the meantime, see more behind-the-scenes moments ahead.
