Bleecker Street Nabs Kristen Stewart, Steven Yeun Movie ‘Love Me’

Bleecker Street and ShivHans Pictures have teamed up for the U.S. release of Love Me, the cosmic love story starring Kristen Stewart and Steven Yeun that bowed in Sundance as part of the U.S. Dramatic Competition section.

The film, the debut feature for writers and directors Sam and Andy Zuchero, a husband and wife filmmaking team, is being shopped in Cannes by WME Independent for foreign sales. Bleecker Street and ShivHans Pictures plan an early 2025 release for the pic that earned the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize in Sundance as it mixes live action, animation, animatronics and game engine architecture.

Love Me also explores topics surrounding AI and identity as the characters played by Stewart and Yeun evolve from animatronic machines to human beings in a love story that spans billions of years. Taking place after humanity’s collapse, the film follows a satellite and buoy as they fall in love. “We are excited to have Bleecker Street onboard as the newest member of our passionate Love Me team to bring the film to audiences and theaters nationwide,” said Sam and Andy Zuchero in a statement.

The film is produced by ShivHans Pictures, 2AM and AgX. Kevin Rowe, Luca Borghese, Ben Howe, Shivani Rawat and Julie Goldstein share producer credits on the film, with Daniel Bekerman, Christine D’Souza Gelb and Connor Flanagan as executive producers.

Bleecker Street and ShivHans also partnered on Andrew Ahn’s The Wedding Banquet, starring Bowen Yang, Lily Gladstone and Kelly Marie Tran.
