PREVIOUS, 3:05PM: In the wake of alleged leaked messages from Armie Hammer about his sex life, the Social Network star is departing the Jennifer Lopez Lionsgate action comedy Shotgun Wedding.

"I'm not responding to these bullshit claims however in gentle of the vicious and spurious on-line assaults towards me, I cannot in good conscience now depart my kids for 4 months to shoot a movie in the Dominican Republic".

Nearly as sudden as the arrival of the project and its road to production, Lionsgate's action rom-com Shotgun Wedding has hit a road bump as star Armie Hammer (Death on the Nile) has exited the project and will be recast, according to Variety.

Hammer asserted that he has the full support of Lionsgate for his decision.

The messages, which according to Page Six, were leaked by anonymous social media account under the name of the House of Effie, were direct messages reportedly from Hammer detailing disturbing sexual fantasies.

The actor was set to star alongside Jennifer Lopez in "Shotgun Wedding", a Lionsgate film following a couple whose destination wedding attendees are taken hostage.

A consultant for the manufacturing stated "Armie has requested to step away from the movie and we help him in his resolution".

Hammer's upcoming feature projects include The Billion Dollar Spy, as well as a planned sequel to the 2017 Oscar winning movie Call Me By Your Name.

The film will be directed by Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect) from a screenplay co-written by Mark Hammer (Two Night Stand) and Liz Meriwether (Single Parents, Bless This Mess). The duo will produce alongside Nuyorican Productions' Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina, with Alex Young executive producing for Mandeville, Courtney Baxter for Nuyorican and Ryan Reynolds & George Dewey.
