Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci will be starring as longtime couple in a romantic drama - and we can't wait. The film, called Supernova, has just wrapped up filming in the Lake District, and Variety reports that it has already garnered multiple distribution deals. In the film, Firth will play a character called Sam, and Tucci will portray Tusker, as they travel across England in an RV. However, there is tragedy: as, after being together for 20 years, Tusker has developed dementia.

Firth and Tucci have starred together twice before — first in Conspiracy and again in 2012, in Gambit. But still, the internet is obsessing over the news. As one Twitter user wrote, ‘When people ask me if I have a celebrity crush, I usually say Colin Firth or Stanley Tucci and now they are in a movie where they are a couple.’ ‘Is it normal that I teared up reading the words “a romance starring Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci as a longtime couple on a road trip?”’ another asked.

Variety describes the pairs relationship in the film as tumultuous, writing, 'As their ideas for the future clash, secrets come out, and their love for each other is tested as never before. Ultimately, they must confront the question of what it means to love one another in the face of Tusker’s illness.'

‘Supernova is a deeply romantic, modern love story,' said Harry Macqueen, the film’s director, who also wrote the script. ‘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.’
