Production is underway on “Shotgun Wedding” and stars Jennifer Lopez and Josh Duhamel were photographed on the set in the Dominican Republic filming an action sequence for the upcoming rom-com.
“Shotgun Wedding” has been in the news after JLo’s original co-star Armie Hammer dropped out of the project following the emergence of disturbing text messages involving cannibalistic fetishes and sexual abuse, allegedly written by the “Social Network” star.
Duhamel was subsequently cast in Hammer’s role, with he and Lopez playing a couple who bring their families along for a lavish destination wedding, only to have second thoughts on their way to the altar.
In new photos from the set, Lopez and Duhamel appear bloody and bruised, their clothes torn and dirty, as they appear to exchange vows.
Lopez also shared a behind-the-scenes look at the film on Instagram.
In addition to exiting “Shotgun Wedding”, Hammer stepped away from “The Offer”, a drama series taking a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather”.
After leaving “Shotgun Wedding”, Hammer issued a statement to ET Canada.
“I’m not responding to these bulls**t claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,” he said. “Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”
