Julia Louis-Dreyfus says audiences will "really freak out" over James Gandolfini's performance in his final film.

James plays her character's love interest in Nicole Holofcener's Enough Said, set for release in September. The actress, who is promoting her role in Disney's Planes, says she worked "intimately" with Gandolfini on the shoot just months before he died.

The 51-year-old died in June of a heart attack while on holiday in Italy. Julia says it was a "dreamy experience" to act alongside him, adding that his character has no trace of Tony Soprano-style darkness.

The romantic comedy will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
