Umbrella Academy and Vampire Diaries stars join Netflix romance movie

The Umbrella Academy’s Tom Hopper is set to swap his dysfunctional superhero family for a picture-perfect relationship, as the actor has jumped aboard a new Netflix rom-com alongside Kat Graham.

As fans of The Umbrella Academy eagerly await the show’s third season, Deadline is reporting that Hopper has signed up for his next role in Netflix movie, Love in the Villa.

Hopper, who fans may better know as Luther Hargreeves, will join The Vampire Diaries star Graham in the escapist romance, which is set to be written and directed by Ghost Rider’s Mark Steven Johnson.

Love in the Villa, which is aiming for a 2022 release on the platform, follows a young woman (Graham) who takes a trip to the romantic city of Verona, Italy, after going through a break-up.


When she arrives at a villa she reserved for the trip, she discovers that the property has been double-booked, and she’ll have to share her vacation with a “cynical (and very good-looking) British man,” the synopsis teases.

Promising rom-com fans “love and laughter”, writer and director Mark Steven Johnson said: “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.”

Hopper’s other Netflix project, The Umbrella Academy, doesn’t quite hold the same premise, with series boss Steve Blackman recently teasing a “wild” and “zany” season when the drama returns.

“What we love is we’re doing a wilder, bigger, zanier, season than ever before,” Blackman revealed. “I think our emotional stories between this dysfunctional family, we’re just building it up even more.”

“There’s some very big surprises with the family this year.”
