Jennifer Lopez and Armie Hammer are to play an about-to-wed couple in the new action-comedy Shotgun Wedding.

US entertainment trade website Deadline reports that the film tells the story of Darcy (Lopez) and Tom (Hammer), who get cold feet just as their destination wedding is about to take place. 

However, that's not the biggest problem - the wedding party is also taken hostage.
