Planning to watch Shotgun Wedding soon? Here’s some trivia that could make it more exciting for you. 

In an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jennifer Lopez’s co-star Josh Duhamel revealed that while the romantic comedy was filmed in the Dominican Republic, it’s actually set in the Philippines. 

In the movie, Lopez plays the role of Darcy, the fiance of Tom (portrayed by Duhamel). They planned on having a destination wedding at a fictional destination in the Philippines dubbed “Mahal Island,” but things took a turn when their relatives decided to weigh in on their decisions and, worse, a bunch of pirates held their entire wedding party hostage.

Also starring Lenny Kravitz and Jennifer Coolidge, the film premiered on Amazon Prime on Friday, Jan. 27. Watch the trailer here:
