Owen Wilson is also on board to star. Kat Coiro is directing the film and the script was written by John Rogers and Tami Sagher, with a rewrite by Harper Dill.
Universal recently acquired the pic from Stx after the company took the film from Uni in April. The studio is now aiming to begin shooting in the fall.
The musical comedy is based on the graphic novel by Bobby Crosby, and is described as a “Notting Hill meets “A Star is Born” that lifts the curtain on celebrity, relationships, and social media. The film explores the possibilities of what might happen when a superstar marries an everyman as a joke and discovers that perhaps there are no accidents.
Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina will produce alongside Rogers.
