Patrick Huard stars as David Wozniak, a 42-year old lovable but perpetual screw up who finally decides to take control of his life. A habitual sperm donor in his youth, he discovers that he’s the biological father of 533 children, 142 of whom are trying to force the fertility clinic to reveal the true identity of the prolific donor code-name Starbuck.
Produced by André Rouleau, the film also stars Julie Le Breton, as David’s long suffering girlfriend who suddenly finds herself pregnant and understandably reluctant to share parenthood with the unreliable David, and Antoine Bertrand, David’s longtime friend, Paul, an attorney who takes on his case while trying to disabuse him of the joys of parenthood.
A runaway box office success in Quebec, STARBUCK premiered at the Toronto Film Festival as a Gala Presentation. English language remake rights for this all too human comedy were sold to Dreamworks. Directed by Ken Scott and starring Vince Vaughn, the American remake is currently set to be released under the title THE DELIVERY MAN on October 4. Entertainment One will release STARBUCK on March 22 in Los Angeles and New York, with a national rollout to follow.
