Bleecker Street has dropped the official trailer for Mafia Mamma, the upcoming crime comedy starring Oscar nominee Toni Collette. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on April 14, 2023.
The video features a woman who goes to Rome for the funeral of her estranged grandfather, who turns out to be an Italian gangster. There, she discovers that her grandfather’s dying wish was for her to be the one to lead his mob empire. Because of this, her life changes in an instant, with hitmen constantly trying to assassinate her.

Mafia Mamma is directed by Catherine Hardwicke from a screenplay written by J. Michael Feldman & Debbie Jhoon. This project reunites Hardwicke with Collette after previously working together on the comedy drama film Miss You Already in 2015.
“The film is a hilarious, action-packed comedy about a suburban American woman who inherits her grandfather’s Mafia empire and, guided by the Firm’s trusted consigliere, defies everyone’s expectations, including her own, as the new head of the family business,” reads the synopsis.
Joining Collette is Monica Bellucci, Giulio Corso, Francesco Mastroianni, Alfonso Perugini, Sophia Nomvete, Eduardo Scarpetta, Tim Daish, and Tommy Rodger.
Mafia Mamma is produced by Collette, Amanda Sthers, and Christopher Simon. It hails from Vocab Films, IDEA (L), and New Sparta.
