“I haven’t done a romantic comedy since The Proposal but I just fell in love with Shotgun Wedding,” said Reynolds. “It’s so refreshing and surprising. I can’t wait to bring it to life with Jason, Todd, Dave and the great team at Lionsgate.”

Mark Hammer wrote the original script with Liz Meriwether also collaborating on the screenplay. Alex Young will executive produce for Mandeville Films alongside Maximum Effort’s George Dewey. Lionsgate Motion Picture Group SVP of Production and Development James Myers and Brady Fujikawa, Director of Development, will oversee for the studio.

“We’ve been looking for an opportunity to reteam with Ryan. He’s a rare actor who can do it all and we are so excited to have found the right film for all of us. It’s great to be working with the talented Jason Moore and our great partners at Lionsgate,” said Lieberman and Hoberman.
