Watch: New Trailer for Christmas Comedy Shot in Pittsburgh
Winter weather presented a number of challenges for the big-name cast led by Diane Keaton, John Goodman and Olivia Wilde.
The trailer for the latest movie shot in Pittsburgh has dropped. "Love the Coopers," shot last winter in Millvale and other Pittsburgh locales, features an A-List cast that includes Diane Keaton, John Goodman, Olivia Wilde, Anthony Mackie, Amanda Seyfried, Marisa Tomei, Ed Helms, Alan Arkin and June Squibb.
The holiday comedy, originally titled "Let it Snow," is described by producers as the story of "exasperated members of an extended family as they attempt to gather for their annual holiday celebration."
Director Jessie Nelson tells Yahoo that the cast got to experience a real Pittsburgh winter.
“It was insane because we were in blizzards in Pittsburgh in the dead of winter. I remember one day shooting a scene with Diane and John and our camera truck froze, I think it was the fuel… And a snow globe, a key prop in a scene, burst because it was so freezing,” she said. “The biggest challenge was navigating that large of a cast in that weather. Some of them had to shoot outside in 10 below. They were all incredible troupers.”
"Love the Coopers" arrives in theaters Nov. 13.
