Armie Hammer had a rough 2020, with his alleged sexually explicit DM's brought forth and his many (alleged) questionable self-filmed, drug-fueled videos being leaked and losing his marriage to Elizabeth Chambers. Now he has stepped down from the fun role he was really looking forward to. His replacement would need to be a big name and really handsome to boot!
Josh Duhamel To Replace Armie Hammer
Since Call Me By Your Name star, Armie Hammer's many scandals are surrounding the news and social platforms, he had decided to give up his role in the Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Reynolds production Shotgun Wedding. Armie told TMZ, "I'm not responding to these bulls*** claims but in the light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic. Lionsgate is supporting me in this, and I'm grateful to them for that."
The production behind the film told ET Canada, "Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film and we support him in his decision."
Luckily, there is already someone in mind to take over the leading role. According to The Hollywood Reporter, handsome and charming Josh Duhamel will be taking over the role in the romcom!
The film surrounds a couple heading to their destination wedding with cold feet while waiting for their families to join. Unfortunately, the entire group gets taken hostage before the wedding can even take place. The fun film is backed by big names and is set to begin filming in February.
Transformer's star Josh will be a great fit considering he has performed in more than a few comedy roles.
