For many people, Ira Sachs’ Keep The Lights On was the gay movie of 2012, earning huge critical plaudits and several awards. Now the helmer is plotting his follow up and thanks to the success of Keep The Lights On, he’s getting some better known names to help him.
Deadline reports it’s emerged at Sundance that Michael Gambon and Alfred Molina are attached to play a married couple in Love Is Strange, which like Sachs’ earlier film, will look at the ups and downs of a gay relationship.
The film will see Gambon and Molina as a couple who’ve been together a long time and decide to get married in New York (where gay marriage is legal). However following their nuptials, they’re forced to live apart.
The plan is to shoot the movie this summer in NYC.
It’s fitting that news of the movie has been revealed at Sundance, as Keep The Lights On got its world premiere at the festival last year.
