Bobby Crosby waited 15 years for his ‘Marry Me’ webcomic to become a movie

Bobby Crosby had an idea in 2001 when watching a televised concert and seeing fans holding up signs asking the singer to marry them: What would happen if that worked? That, he says, became the basis for his webcomic Marry Me, now a movie starring Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson.

'Marry Me' creator Bobby Crosby reveals potential previous adaptions involved Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars

Marry Me, starring Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson, is finally in theaters -- a moment Bobby Crosby says he's anticipated for 15 years. Crosby created the Marry Me webcomic, on which the movie is based, and posted the first page on February 14, 2007 -- 15 years ago. He tells ABC Audio that a Marry Me movie could've hit theaters a decade earlier -- but he didn't like the proposed changes to the main characters.
