Cheech Marin is the father of the bride…
The 74-year-old Mexican-American actor and stand-up comedian will star in the Lionsgate action-comedy Shotgun Wedding, starring Jennifer Lopez and Josh Duhamel.
Mark Hammer and Liz Meriwether penned the screenplay, Jason Moore is directing the film.
In the film, Grace (Lopez) and Tom (Duhamel) gather their lovable but very opinionated families for the ultimate destination wedding just as the couple begins 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. “Til Death Do Us Part” takes on a whole new meaning in this hilarious, adrenaline-fueled adventure as Grace and Tom must save their loved ones — if they don’t kill each other first.
Marin will play Robert, Grace’s father.
Other cast members include Lenny Kravitz, D’Arcy Carden, Selena Tan, Desmin Borges and Alex Mallari.
Borges’ character is Ricky, the permanently whisky-buzzed, embarrassing childhood best friend of Tom.
Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina are producing for Nuyorican Productions.
Production is slated to commence this month.
Marin is best known as one-half of the comedy duo Cheech & Chong.
Borges’ credits include You’re the Worst on FX, Amazon’s Utopia, and the Netflix limited series Living with Yourself.
