The Armie Hammer The saga continues: Josh Duhamel is now in talks to replace Hammer in the film Shotgun Wedding alongside Jennifer LopezAccording to The Hollywood Reporter.
A source says E! News: “Nothing is official right now, but Jennifer would appreciate the opportunity to work with Josh Duhamel. They’ve met before and she thinks he’s a great guy.”
THR reports that Lopez has a say in who her co-star will be.
Directed by Pitch Perfect’s Jason MooreAccording to reports, the film follows two lovers at their wedding when the guests are taken hostage.
Hammer stepped down from the role last week when a scandal broke out in which unconfirmed allegations about his sexual fantasies were made.
Although the Rebecca actor said he was “not responding to these cops-t allegations,” he decided to leave the project because of the public backlash.
“With all the vicious and false online attacks against me, I can’t now safely leave my children for four months to make a film in the Dominican Republic,” Hammer told E! News in a statement. “Lionsgate supports me in this and I am grateful to them.”
