Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds is set to produce and lead Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore’s action-comedy Shotgun Wedding.
The offbeat actor will produce through his Maximum Effort banner, and the feature has a script from Mark Hammer and Liz Meriwether. Studio Lionsgate will oversee production.
“I haven’t done a romantic comedy since The Proposal, but I just fell in love with Shotgun Wedding,” Reynolds said, in a statement, “It’s so refreshing and surprising. I can’t wait to bring it to life.”
The feature will follow as a couple holiday to an exotic and extravagant destination for their dream wedding, only to find the resort taken over by gun-toting criminals. In the process of defending their friends and family, they’ll rediscover exactly why they fell for each other in the first place.
Shotgun Wedding is presently lacking a release date. Ryan Reynolds can next be heard as the voice of the titular Poké-sleuth in Legendary Pictures’ Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, out in UK cinemas on the 10th May, 2019.
