The movie was written, directed, and produced by Mark Steven Johnson, who is most famous for his other works like When in Rome, Christopher Robin, Love, Guaranteed, and Ghost Rider. If you've been on the hunt for a new rom-com to watch, this might intrigue you. Here's everything you need to know about Love in the Villa.
Love in the Villa Release Date
The film started production in September 2021. The scenes in the film were all shot in Verona, Italy.
Netflix released Love in the Villa last Thursday, September 1st, 2022. It is currently one of the most watched films on the streaming platform.
Love in the Villa Story
When Johnson created Love in the Villa, he commented: "Now, more than ever, people need some love and laughter in their lives. Everyone seems so divided these days. But in the end everyone wants the same thing -- to love and to be loved. That's what movies like Love in the Villa are about."
On Netflix, the official logline for the film reads:
"The film follows a young woman who takes a trip to romantic Verona, Italy, after a breakup, only to find that the villa she reserved was double-booked, and she’ll have to share her vacation with a cynical (and very good-looking) British man."
It's exciting to see how the story of the two strangers with a double booking in a Villa can be very interesting to see. Thankfully, it's nothing like Barbarian, who puts a horrifying twist in the idea of a double booked property rental.
Love in the Villa Cast
One of the best things about Love in the Villa is its star-studded cast. The movie stars Tom Hopper as Charlie Fletcher and Kat Graham as Julie Hutton. You would likely recognize Hopper for his role as Luther Hargreeves in The Umbrella Academy and Dickon Tarly in Game of Thrones. Meanwhile, Graham has been known for playing Bonnie Bennett in The Vampire Diaries.
The full list of characters involved in the film include the following:
- Kat Graham (as Julie Hutton)
