Patti Amore sounds like a fake name someone on Twitter would make up to mock a project like this

And yet the film’s not called Pat’s Amore!. Oscar-worthy screenwriter my rear.

That’s Amore! is a musical romantic comedy about a 40-year-old bachelor who thinks his best years are behind him and who is resigned to working in his family’s pizza restaurant. That is, until he meets Patti Amore, a shy and introverted loner with an overprotective father and a dark secret in her past. The two emotionally damaged people enter into a relationship.
I don't know folks this sounds pretty badass to me and I'm sure in no way will it reinforce any stereotypes about Italians.

Is the "dark secret in her past" that she's an Academy member who voted for Green Book?

It's a cute short story but to make it into a full-length film... gonna have to be a pretty extensive adaptation.

Abel Ferrara's Siberia is currently being shot.

Edit: wrong info, sorry. Tommaso is a different film.

Have to see who's directing/starring but the original is a great film so this'll inevitably pale in comparison.

Screen Gems releases a lot of junk. Not a good sign.

No director mentioned, but what if it is still a Joe Carnahan project after all these years?

Francis Ford Coppola talking up Megalopolis again. I remember reading articles about this almost 20 years ago now, he apparently had Russell Crowe and Paul Newman lined up, and was doing it with Dreamworks when they were in their brief stride.

He's becoming someone who enjoys steady employment. Nothing wrong with that.

Denis Villeneuve will helm Cleopatra, produced by Scott Rudin... Not sure how I feel about this
I only love a couple of Villeneuve's films so I guess I don't have strong feelings about this, but that just seems like a pretty uninspiring project for him. But maybe there's a hook he has in mind.

So were Sicario and Blade Runner 2049. I'm less enthused about another Dune, but he's choosing "big" projects that don't sound interesting. Nolan is technically a "studio" guy but his projects are interesting and "his". Its a shame to lose Villeneuve to ordinary studio films. But maybe I'm full of shit and both Dune and this would be his own and great.

His own seems irrelevant to me. A lot of great studio product has been impersonal.

Well... yeah. But I guess it's just me not finding that story interesting + all the talk about said film and Fincher in the last few years just doesn't really build a case for this being interesting. Again, it might come out good and so far he has scored for me without fail. Just seems a disappointing choice of films atm
