Josh Duhamel says that working with Jennifer Lopez and Lenny Kravitz on the upcoming comedy Shotgun Wedding was a dream job.

Speaking with PEOPLE (the TV Show!), on Monday, Duhamel, 48, said that shooting in the Dominican Republic with the stars was "one of the best experiences I've ever had working."

"It was one of the best experiences I've ever had working, honestly. You're in the Dominican Republic, which is absolutely beautiful. We shot at some of the most gorgeous places you've ever seen," he said.

"J. Lo was awesome to work with. Lenny Kravitz is just a stud," he continued. "We had an awesome cast, we had an awesome crew, we had beautiful scenery all around. It's what you dream about when you set out to make movies."

Duhamel also shared with PEOPLE (the TV Show!) what it was like working out in the Dominican Republic.

"I didn't have access to a gym when I was there, so I had to make up my own little circuits. We set up these four circuits," he explained. "One was jump rope, one was sit-ups or something, and then one was these bands, and then the other one was a rowing machine. We just had to make do with what we had around us, but I'm back in LA now, and I can get back into my old routine."

Shotgun Wedding — produced by Lopez and Ryan Reynolds — is a romantic comedy that follows a couple bringing their families together for a destination wedding.

But the dream ceremony starts to fall apart when they get cold feet after arriving at the location. Then, the pair are forced to come together to rescue their families from a dangerous hostage situation.

A first look at the film, released last week, saw a bloodied-up Duhamel and Lopez in one image, with their outfits all wrinkled up and dirty.

The second of the images, which Lopez shared on Twitter, showed the two on set as Lopez lounges in a golf cart while Duhamel stands next to her holding a large umbrella to protect them both from the sun.

Lopez has shared several photos from the Shotgun Wedding set through its two months of filming in the Dominican Republic, before the production concluded in April.

"That's 👏 A 👏 Wrap! 👏" the "Waiting for Tonight" singer captioned one carousel of images, which showed herself and her costars in costume.

In one of the photos, she and Duhamel lounged in chairs set up on a beachside boardwalk. In the snap, Lopez wore a nude-colored tulle dress with combat boots, while Duhamel wore a tuxedo without the jacket, his bowtie undone.

Duhamel previously signed on to Shotgun Wedding to replace Armie Hammer after the Call Me By Your Name actor stepped down from the role in January amid ongoing allegations against him.
