Audience Shower Praises on the Trailer
The trailer has been well-received by the audiences, who are praising the film and the actors in their comments. One viewer commented, “Looks like I found the romantic comedy movie to watch in peace, this summer. And also without getting annoyed by some teenagers.”
“This was too sweet. I usually hate «i-have-seen-this-kind-of-love-story-1000times» movies, but Tom and Kat are two SO underrated and funny actors that im gonna watch this for sure. And who doesn’t love Italy,” wrote another one.
A fan also commented, “omg I love this pairing! also Tom is freaking hilarious, I love him in umbrella academy. Excited to see what other roles he takes in the future!!”
Love in the Villa Cast
The film will star The Umbrella Academy actor Tom Hopper as Charlie and The Vampire Diaries actor Kat Graham as Julie Hutton. Talking about why she decided to work in the film, Graham said, “Verona was already my favorite place in the world, which is also really strange. I had had a break-up and we got back together in Verona. And then two years later, I get this film.”
Hopper, on the other hand, revealed that his wife Laura Hopper convinced him to take up the project. He said, “My wife tends to read a lot of the scripts before I get to them. Some of the ones she’s like, ‘Oh don’t bother, you’re not going to connect with this one.’ And then, with this one, she was like, ‘I just read this really great script called Love in the Villa. It’s a really sweet rom-com.'”
Laura also stars in the film as Casie. Other cast members include Raymond Ablack, Sean Amsing, and Emilio Solfrizzi. The film has been written and directed by Mark Steven Johnson, who has previously directed When in Rome and Love, Guaranteed.
