Open Post: Hosted By Lenny Kravitz Joining The Cast Of “Shotgun Wedding”

February 17, 2021 / Posted by:

When Armie Hammerstepped away from” (aka was fired from) the upcoming film Shotgun Wedding, the producers had a herculean task ahead of them. One, find a handsome actor to replace him (check). And two, find a way to make everyone forget that Armie was ever associated with the movie to begin with. They’ve done that by bringing in shotgun-whipper-outer Lenny Kravitz.

Deadline reports today that Lenny has officially joined the cast, which includes Jennifer Lopez, Josh Duhamel, Jennifer Coolidge, Cheech Marin, D’Arcy Carden, Sonia Braga, Selena Tan, Desmin Borges, and Alex Mallari. As an actor, Lenny has appeared in The Hunger Games series, Precious, and The Butler. This will be his first acting gig in nearly 5 years (the last time he was tasked with memorizing lines was back in 2016, for appearances on the TV series Star and Better Things).

Shotgun Wedding begins shooting in the Dominican Republic very soon, and is about two people, Grace and Tom (JLo and Josh Duhamel respectively) who have a destination wedding and invite their friends and family, and then – whoopsies! – the whole wedding party gets taken hostage. Grace and Tom then have to save their family, because apparently there are no hostage negotiators available to them at this time (I guess everyone is cutting back because of the pandemic). Also, the bride and groom get cold feet right before their wedding, which is a major plot point.

And I think it’s pretty obvious why. Lenny Kravitz will play JLo’s ex. Ex?!? I hope they have some good screenwriters on this project because they’re going to have a hell of a time explaining why JLo doesn’t interrupt her own wedding at the “Does anyone have any objections” part and yell that she’s changed her mind, and she wants to marry the hot one. Even the villains who take them hostage will have a hard time staying on task. “We’ll discuss your ransom in a moment, but first, we need to ask: WHY weren’t you marrying Lenny Kravitz? If I wasn’t already knee-deep in a hostage situation, I’d volunteer to let him take me hostage. Do what you want with me – I’ll let you put the D in detainee!
