Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are taking their romance to the big screen.

On Tuesday, the “Modern Family” star and her husband were spotted filming together for the first time in New York City. The couple are set to star in the upcoming movie, “Stano.” The film tells the story of “a man who returns to the Bronx after serving 17 years in prison for a violent mistake he made as a kid that ultimately robbed him of a professional baseball career and the love of his life,” according to Deadline.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Vergara was seen hugging children as they enter a school one by one in the scene being filmed. She was also talking to Manganiello, who stood with her in front of the school gates. See set photos here.

Vergara’s role is still being kept under wraps, but it’s possible she will play the love interest of Manganiello’s character. After all, the couple has already shown plenty of chemistry on the set on their first shooting day.

Meanwhile, Manganiello also gave fans an update on the filming by sharing an image of a fish truck on his Instagram. “#STANO Day 1,” he captioned the photo.

Prior to filming their movie, the two have been enjoying their summer in the Big Apple. Vergara shared a snapshot of herself and her hubby having a meal in the Bronx. In the photo, Manganiello is wearing a sweatshirt which read, “I’m Italian, I Can’t Keep Calm,” as he makes a funny face behind his wife.

However, things have not always been easy for Vergara and Manganiello these past few months. Back in May, Star magazine ran a story claiming that she and the “Magic Mike” star are on the verge of divorce because she cheated on him.

She took to Instagram to blast the tabloid, calling the divorce rumor “fake news” and the editor of the magazine an “idiot.” She also clarified that the person she was being accused of having an affair with in Italy was Andrea Iervolino, her friend and the producer of her movie, “Bent.” Vergara went on to say that the producer even came to their home to celebrate Easter with her and Manganiello a week after their photos in Rome were taken.

Vergara and Manganiello started dating in July 2014 and got engaged just months later on Christmas Day. They wed in November 2015 in a beautiful ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida.
