Marry Me is about to become our new favorite romance film. 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 centers 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 2019 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. Maluma and Lopez then 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 2020. "So it's exciting." She added: "I think I have like six or eight songs and Maluma does two or three."
Marry Me was originally set to hit theaters on Valentine's Day in 2021, but it was eventually pushed back to May 14, 2021. Now, the release date has been moved again, and it's expected to be released on Feb. 11, 2022. In the meantime, see more behind-the-scenes moments ahead.
