Bleecker Street has acquired North American rights to Harry Macqueen’s second feature, Supernova, starring Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci.
The pic follows Sam (Colin Firth) and Tusker (Stanley Tucci), partners of 20 years, who are travelling across England in their old campervan visiting friends, family and places from their past. Following a life-changing diagnosis, their time together has become more important than ever until secret plans test their love like never before. The movie recently made its world premiere at the San Sebastian film festival.
“When we saw this film, we were so taken by the beauty of the writing and how timeless of a love story Harry created,” said Andrew Karpen, CEO of Bleecker Street. “The performances of Colin and Stanley are so touching and authentic, we knew we wanted to be part of bringing it to audiences.”
