Already set for a US remake, with Vince Vaughn attached in the lead, the original Quebec-made comedy will be released in the UK next month, and now a great new trailer has arrived.
“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, who makes his feature debut as a writer.
Starbuck will be released in UK theatres on 23rd November, and is set to get a wide release in the US next spring. If this wasn’t on your radar already, now is definitely the time to put it on, because it looks like a lot of fun. And with a Hollywood remake already in progress, next month is the perfect time to discover the original. For now, here’s the new UK trailer. Enjoy.
