The 50-year-old multi-talented star took to Instagram on Thursday to share photos from the first day of shooting their upcoming rom-com, as well as pen a heartfelt message about working with such talented people.

Marry Me follows Lopez, a pop star, who, moments before marrying her rock-star fiance (played by Maluma) at Madison Square Garden, finds out he was cheating with her assistant and spontaneously picks a random math teacher (Owen Wilson) out of the crowd to marry instead. The rom-com is directed by Kat Coiro and is based on a graphic novel by Bobby Crosby. 

Earlier this week, Lopez was spotted with Wilson filming at Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York.

Maluma had previously told ET that he had aspirations of acting in the future -- but was waiting for the right role. 

"I would love to [act]. It's just that everything comes at its moment," he said while promoting his YouTube documentary. "Then, with God's help, I will look for opportunities to act. But if I do it, I would want to do something big. To do something in Hollywood, something that represents a big movement. At the moment, I'm focused on my musical career."

Meanwhile, Lopez currently stars in the critically acclaimed drama, Hustlers, and is scheduled to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show next year with Shakira.
