Shooting has wrapped on actor-turned-director Harry Macqueen’s romantic tale Supernova, starring Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci, who play a couple on a road trip across England. It is Macqueen’s second feature as a director, following his tender 2014 debut, Hinterland.
The story follows the continuing, long-term relationship between Tusker (Tucci) and Sam (Firth). Tusker has been living with dementia for two years, so he decides that they will travel in their RV visiting friends, family and places from the past in rural England.
Following the revelation of past secrets, the couple realises that their ideas for the future are different and incompatible. Their love is put to the test like never before. Director Macqueen describes the film, which questions whether their love can overcome this bumpy road, as “a deeply romantic, modern love story”.
French sales agent The Bureau Sales has racked up several European sales. Supernova has been sold to StudioCanal in the UK, Weltkino in Germany and Austria, and Cinéart in Benelux, while Scanbox will distribute in Scandinavia.
Supernova is being produced by Emily Morgan, of British outfit Quiddity Films (I Am Not a Witch [+lire aussi :

Development was initiated by Morgan, with research and screenwriting support from the Wellcome Trust and also coming courtesy of Quiddity’s BFI Vision Award, before The Bureau had boarded the film. The financiers are BBC Films and the BFI. The executive producers are Mary Burke, Vincent Gadelle and Eva Yates.
Clémentine Hugot, of The Bureau Sales, described the film as “every sales agent’s dream”. Firth won an Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe for his iconic turn as King George VI in The King’s Speech [+lire aussi :

The crew is equally illustrious: two-time Oscar nominee Dick Pope is lensing, working alongside production designer Sarah Finlay, editor Chris Wyatt and supervising sound editor Joakim Sündstrom.
