Looks like Maluma might be making his big-screen debut alongside some major superstars. The crooner, born Juan Luis Londoño Arias, is in talks to star with Jennifer Lopez in the upcoming film, Marry Me, Billboard has confirmed.  

The Kat Coiro-directed film based on a novel of the same name is a romantic comedy in which Maluma would play a rocker engaged to Lopez, who plays a pop star. On the day of their extravagant wedding at Madison Square Garden, Lopez finds out Maluma is cheating on her with her assistant. Instead of ruining the wedding, she impulsively decides to marry someone else in the moment, choosing a math teacher played by Owen Wilson.

The film doesn't have an official release day yet.
