‘Marry Me’: Jennifer Lopez Romantic Comedy Sets Valentine’s Day Weekend Release

Universal Pictures’ Jennifer Lopez romantic comedy Marry Me will be released on Valentine’s Day Weekend, Friday, Feb. 12, 2021. The feature takes the place of the untitled Universal romantic comedy on the release schedule.

Marry Me squares off against Disney/Marvel’s Eternals and Paramount’s Lee Daniels’ Billie Holiday movie on its new date.

As we first reported, the Kat Coiro-directed movie was originally set up at Universal, then went to STX, and then back to Universal.

The pic features originals songs by Lopez and Latin music sensation Maluma. Lopez stars as musical superstar Kat Valdez and Owen Wilson as Charlie Gilbert, a math teacher—total strangers who agree to marry and then get to know each other.

John Rogers (TNT’s The Librarians) and Tami Sagher (NBC’s 30 Rock) and Harper Dill (Fox’s The Mick) wrote the screenplay based on the graphic novel by Bobby Crosby. Pic is produced by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas (HustlersMaid in Manhattan), Lopez, Benny Medina (Hustlers, NBC’s The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) and John Rogers. The film’s executive producers are Alex Brown, Willie Mercer, Pamela Thur and J.B. Roberts.
