Finally! An Alan Partridge Film to Shoot Later This Year
After decades, and a variety of mediums, Steve Coogan’s Alan Partridge is finally going to be brought to the big screen. Armando Iannucci, who has been Coogan’s writing partner on most things Partridge and most recently created HBO’s Veep, told Empire magazine, “It’s just about all come together now, so that’ll be shot later in the year.” Exclamation points!!!! There has been talk of a Partridge film basically since the character was created in the early 90s; however, nothing came to pass, even after multiple TV series, a web series, a book, a tour, and general legend. Will this be Coogan’s breakout role in the States, which will get him out of just playing angry hubristic jerks? Abso-bloody-exactly! Or at least abso-bloody-possibly!
