They may have spent the holidays together, but it’s just business between Ashton Kutcher and Lorene Scafaria.

“They are just friends,” Kutcher’s rep tells PEOPLE of his relationship with the writer-director, who penned Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist. “They are working on a potential project together about an Italian soccer team.”

“Roman holiday with homies,” he wrote.
