About Marry Me
Kat Valdez (Jennifer Lopez) are one half of the sexiest celebrity couple on Earth with new music supernova Bastian (Maluma, who is making her feature film debut). As Kat and Bastian’s must-have hit single “Marry Me” climbs the charts, they’re set to wed in front of an audience of their fans in a ceremony that will be streamed across multiple platforms.

Divorced high school math teacher Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson) was dragged to the concert by his daughter Lou (Chloe Colman, Big little lies) and his best friend (Sarah Silverman). When Kat learns, seconds before the ceremony, that Bastian cheated on her with his assistant, her life takes a turn for the worse as she breaks down on stage, questioning love, truth, and loyalty. As her gossamer world fades, she locks eyes with a stranger – a face in the crowd.

If what you know is failing you, then maybe what you don’t know is the answer, and so, in a moment of inspired madness, Kat chooses to marry Charlie. What begins as an impulsive reaction turns into an unexpected romance. But as the forces conspire to separate them, the universal question arises: Can two people from such different worlds bridge the gap between them and build a place where they both belong?

The film also features John Bradley (game of thrones), Michael Buteau (Michael Buteau: Welcome to Buteaupia) and Utkarsh Ambudkar (Mulane).

Marry me is directed by Kat Coiro (Dead to me, it’s always sunny in philadelphia cream, To come up She-Hulk) based on a scenario of John Rogers (Librarians) and Tami Sagher (NBC 30 Rock) and harper’s dill (The mic) based on the graphic novel by Bobby Crosby. The film is produced by Jennifer Lopez gpa and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas pg (Hustlers, Maid in manhattan) for Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions, by John Rogers for Kung Fu Monkey Productions and by Benny Medina (Hustlers, The fresh prince of Bel-Air).
