Harry Macqueen’s Supernova, starring Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci, has wrapped shooting in the Lake District.
The Bureau Sales is handling international sales and has deals in place for the UK (Studiocanal), Germany/Austria (Weltkino), Japan (Culture Entertainment), Benelux (Cineart), Taiwan (Catchplay), Scandinavia (Scanbox) and worldwide airlines (Penny Black).
The title is the second feature directed by Harry MacQueen after 2014’s Hinterland, and is produced by I Am Not A Witch producer Emily Morgan (a Screen Star Of Tomorrow) for Quiddity Films and Tristan Goligher of The Bureau.
The cinematographer is two-time Oscar nominee Dick Pope (Mr. Turner, The Illusionist).
The drama has been filming near Keswick in the UK’s Lake District, and sees Firth and Tucci playing a couple, one of whom has early onset dementia, on a road trip across the UK.
The project was developed by Morgan with support from the Wellcome Trust and Quiddity’s BFI Vision Award, before partnering with The Bureau. Financiers are BBC Films and the BFI, awarding National Lottery funding. Executive producers are Mary Burke, Vincent Gadelle and Eva Yates.
