Digital Domain gets UA’s ‘Supernova’ f/x

'Titanic' effects crew, Stetson land sc-fi thriller

Oscar-winning visual f/x shop Digital Domain has landed the contract to produce the visual effects for United Artists’ sci-fi thriller “Supernova.”

Mark Stetson, recipient of the 1997 British Academy Award for best visual effects for his work on Luc Besson’s “The Fifth Element,” will supervise the “Supernova” effects work. Sources described the film as medium-sized, from an f/x perspective, estimating it will require somewhere in excess of 200 shots.

Stetson’s visual effects credits include “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” “Bladerunner,” “Batman Returns” and others. Digital Domain won the 1997 visual effects Oscar for its work on “Titanic.”

Pic, which started lensing in mid-April under Walter Hill’s direction, stars Angela Bassett, James Spader and Robert Forster. Story is about a deep space medical ship and its six-member crew that answers a distress call and rescues a mysterious survivor.

The film’s producers are Dan Chuba, Jamie Dixon and Ash Shah. Ralph Singleton is exec producing. Script is by David Campbell Wilson, Cathy Rabin, Chuba and Thomas Wheeler.
