Bursting with original songs by Jennifer Lopez and global Latin music star Maluma, Kat Coiro‘s (Dead to Me, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, upcoming She-Hulk) modern love story about celebrity, marriage, and social media, Marry Me will release in cinemas and on streaming only on Peacock next Valentine’s Day starring Lopez and Owen Wilson.
Directed by Coiro from a screenplay by John Rogers (The Librarians) and Tami Sagher (NBC’s 30 Rock) and Harper Dill (The Mick) based on the graphic novel by Bobby Crosby, Marry Me tells the story of Kat Valdez (Lopez), one half of the sexiest celebrity couple on Earth alongside new music supernova Bastian (Maluma, making his feature film debut). As Kat and Bastian’s smash hit “Marry Me” soars to the top of the charts, the two have plans to get married in front of an audience of their fans in a live-streamed ceremony.
Meanwhile, Charlie Gilbert (Wilson), a divorced high school maths teacher, gets dragged to the concert by his daughter Lou (Chloe Coleman, Big Little Lies) and her best friend (Sarah Silverman). When Kat learns, seconds before the ceremony that Bastian has cheated on her with his assistant her life takes a drastic turn she collapses on stage, questioning love, truth, and loyalty. As her gossamer world falls away, she locks eyes with a stranger—a face in the crowd.
If what you know lets you down, then perhaps what you don’t know is the answer, and so, in a moment of inspired insanity, Kat chooses to marry Charlie. What begins as an impulsive reaction evolves into an unexpected romance. But as forces conspire to separate them, the universal question arises: Can two people from such different worlds bridge the gulf between them and build a place where they both belong?
Marry Me also stars John Bradley (“Game of Thrones”), Michelle Buteau (“Michelle Buteau: Welcome to Buteaupia”), and Utkarsh Ambudkar (Mulan) and will release this coming February 11, 2022. In anticipation, we’ll leave you with a brand new featurette Universal Pictures has released to provide a look inside this unlikely romance about two different people searching for something real in a world where value is based on likes and followers.
