    Back in January, Hammer dropped out of the movie after a series of alleged DMs leaked that showed disturbing and sexually aggressive behavior.

    At the time, Hammer released a statement describing the messages as "bullshit claims."

    Shortly after, two of Hammer's exes accused Hammer of abuse.

    In March, another woman came forward and accused Hammer of violently raping her in 2017. He has denied the allegations.

    Speaking to Man About Town in late February, Duhamel said of his casting in Shotgun Wedding, "It’s not how I like to get roles."

    “I know Armie a little bit," he continued. "When I knew I was gonna get the part, I emailed him and said, ‘Listen, I know you are going through it right now, I don’t like to get roles like this and I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you and good luck, get through it.'”
