Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have already proven that their second shot at romance worked.
The two married in July, nearly 20 years after they first set the world on fire as Benifer from 2002 to 2004.
Now, Lopez says she and her husband may reunite on the big screen. They infamously co-starred in 2003’s “Gigley,” which bombed both with critics and at the box office.
“Maybe, maybe! Absolutely,” Lopez said when I asked her at the premiere of her new action rom-com “Shotgun Wedding” Wednesday night if she and Affleck have plans to work together again. “We talk. We love being together and working together, yeah, you never know.”
Lopez also stressed that she doesn’t have a release date yet for her new album, “This Is Me… Now,” but said she’ll likely tour or book a Las Vegas residency in support of its release. “The album is done and we’re making the best time to get it out and roll it out little by little and decide how we want to do it,” Lopez said. “It’s a special project because it’s the culmination of this 20-year journey from album to album.”
“Shotgun Wedding” stars Lopez and Josh Duhamel as a couple whose tropical destination wedding goes awry when kidnappers take all their guests hostage. Lenny Kravitz plays Lopez’s ex-boyfriend in the Jason Moore-directed movie.
Lopez and Kravitz told me they talked about recording a song together for the soundtrack. “But we’re both so busy, we hardly make it to the premiere,” laughs Lopez.
“Shotgun Wedding” premieres on Amazon Prime Video on January 27
