Released in Canada last year, the French-Canadian hit comedy, Starbuck, was received with brilliant reviews – you can read our review here – and has since prompted a Hollywood remake, starring Vince Vaughn, which is due out in Autumn 2013.

The original will be released here in the UK next Friday, and after catching the UK trailer last month, we’ve got an exclusive clip from the upcoming comedy to share.

“At 42, David lives the life of an irresponsible adolescent. Twenty years earlier, he’d provided sperm to a fertility clinic in exchange for money. As his on/off girlfriend tells him she is pregnant, he also discovers he’s the father of 533 children, 142 of whom have filed a class action lawsuit to determine the identity of their biological father, known only by the pseudonym Starbuck.”

Patrick Huard stars in the eponymous, anonymous lead, alongside Julie LeBreton, Antoine Bertrand, Dominic Philie, Marc Bélanger, and Igor Ovadis.

Ken Scott (Les doigts croches/Sticky Fingers) makes his sophomore feature behind the camera, directing from a script he co-wrote with Martin Petit, with the latter making his feature debut as a writer.

Starbuck will be released in the UK next Friday, 23rd November, before getting a wide release in the US on 29th March, 2013. Whilst we wait, here’s the new clip to give you an idea of what Scott has in store for us. Enjoy.
