Deadline is exclusively reporting that Lenny Kravitz, Cheech Marin, D’Arcy Carden, Selena Tan, Desmin Borges And Alex Mallari Jr. are the latest names to join the cast for Lionsgate’s action comedy Shotgun Wedding.
The film follows Darcy and Tom, who gather their lovable but very opinionated families for the ultimate destination wedding just as the couple begin to get cold feet. And if that wasn’t enough of a threat to the celebration, suddenly everyone’s lives are in danger when the entire party is taken hostage.
Lenny Kravitz (whose credits include The Hunger Games and The Butler) will be playing the role of Grace’s globetrotting ex Sean. Cheech Marin (whose credits include Elena of Avalor and War With Grandpa) will be playing the role of Grace’s father Robert. D’Arcy Carden (whose credits include The Good Place and Barry) will be playing the role of Robert’s new wife Harriet. Selena Tan (whose credits include Crazy Rich Asians and Rojak) will be playing the role of Marge, the head of the wedding resort. Desmin Borges (whose credits include You’re The Worst and Utopia) will be playing the role of Ricky, the permanently whisky-buzzed, embarrassing childhood best friend of Tom. Alex Mallari Jr. (whose credits include Dark Matter and Code 8) will be playing the role of Dog-Face, a pirate.
The screenplay is written by Mark Hammer and Liz Meriwether, with Jason Moore attached to direct. Mandeville’s Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman will serve as producers on the project alongside Nuyorican Productions’ Jennifer Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina. Alex Young will be overseeing production on the project, as well as serving as executive producer alongside Courtney Baxter, Ryan Reynolds and George Dewey.
