Owen Wilson in Talks to Star As Luckiest Fan Alive in Jennifer Lopez Rom-Com "Marry Me"

A Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson rom-com somehow feels like late-’90s nostalgia, despite the fact they’ve only ever appeared in Anaconda together, and the world is very much not on your side when it comes to how romantic you find that film. The pair will reportedly co-star in the upcoming movie Marry Me from STXfilms, the company behind J.Lo’s Second Act and the upcoming Hustlers. Marry Me is based on an online graphic novel by Bobby Crosby; Lopez will star as a pop star, who, having found out about her fiancé’s infidelities, bails on their public marriage at Madison Square Garden and selects an audience member (Wilson) holding a (what else?) “Marry Me” sign to be her groom.
