The publication also quotes the director on his take on Supernova, the script of which was also penned by Macqueen. He says, “Supernova is a deeply romantic, modern love story. It follows two people who are bound together by their love for each other but being pushed apart by the situation they find themselves in. It is an intimate, naked portrayal of a relationship facing a fissure that threatens to cut it to its very core.”
Firth, a veteran in English cinema, won an Oscar, a BAFTA and a Golden Globe for his performance as King George VI in The King’s Speech. His role in A Single Man also got him a BAFTA and an Oscar nomination. Tucci on the other hand, received an Academy nomination for his work in The Lovely Bones. Hunger Games and The Devil Wears Prada remain his most popular films to date.
Clémentine Hugot of The Bureau Sales states that certain factors like A-list actors, prominent producers, an 'elegant' script and the director's well-known penchant for mixing humour with emotions, have been crucial in getting the distribution deals.
Directed by Paul King, Timothee Chalamet is all set to star in Wonka, detailing the origin story of the fictitious candy maker.

“I was one of those dinosaurs who was so loyal to movies and cinema,” Farahani says. “I never took any proposition seriously because it was a bit like I wanted to keep cinema alive.”
To see a couple of privileged folk, frantically trying to scramble their way to safety, their faces whiter than their original white after what they have just seen. It is oddly satisfying to see how it ends for them, because I know it will.
