“Two feuding families. Two forbidden loves. It’s a perfect recipe” – the trailer for the upcoming romantic comedy from Lionsgate, Little Italy, says.
Set against the backdrop of New York City’s Little Italy neighborhood, the film revolves around Nikki Angioli (Emma Roberts), a chef living abroad who returns home to deal with visa-related issues, and Leo Campo (Hayden Christensen), a handsome guy with whom she falls in love. This would not be a problem if he weren’t the son of her father’s rival.
Directed by Donald Petrie (director behind Miss Congeniality and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days ), the film also stars Alyssa Milano, Jane Seymore, Andrea Martin, and Danny Aiello.
The trailer gives viewers a glimpse into the inter-generational family drama, the feuding of the Angioli and Campo families, and includes lots of pizza. A slice of pizza to welcome Nikki home, pizza dough flying in the air, Nikki and Leo preparing a pizza together, and more. In one of the scenes, Leo delivers Nikki a pizza to her bedroom window using a ladder.
The songs used in the trailer are “Kinda Complicated” by Scott Helman and “All My Life” by WILD.
The film will be available in theaters and On Demand this fall, September 11.
