John Travolta and Katherine Heigl have been set to star in Nick Vallelonga’s upcoming rom-com ‘That’s Amore!.’

Christopher Walken is currently in talks to join the cast.

The film centres around Nick Venere (Travolta), a modern-day “Marty” – he’s never been married and his best dating years are well behind him. He’s never heard the words “I love you” and figures he never will. Patty Amore (Heigl) has her share of problems as well. Shy and introverted, she’s filled with various tics and nervous habits. A secret from her past, combined with her over-protective father, has caused her to withdraw from the dating game. When Nick and Patty meet, literally bumping into one another, they share an immediate connection. When these two emotionally damaged people attempt to date one another, their families get involved, and the results are hilarious.

Vallelonga’s team includes cinematographer Dante Spinotti, production designer Gianni Quaranta, editor Steven Rosenblum and costume designer Besty Heimann. David Polemeni, Tamara Birkemoe and Mark Damon are executive producers on the film.
