Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci to star as a couple in a new tear-jerking movie.

According to Variety, Tucci – who starred in the iconic The Devil Wears Prada – and Firth, who gave a powerful performance in A Single Man, recently finished shooting a new film called Supernova.

Directed by Harry Macqueen, the film follows the couple who drive across England seeing friends and visiting places that remind them of their time together after Tucci’s character is diagnosed with early onset dementia.

The entertainment magazine said: “As the trip progresses, however, 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.”

Macqueen added: “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.”
