For years there have been rumours of an Alan Partridge movie, and now they’re realy coming true, as it’s been revealed that the film is now shooting in Norfolk. Variety also reports that the cast has grown substantially, as Steve Coogan will be joined by the likes of Sean Pertwee, Colm Meaney, Anna Maxwell Martin, Monica Dolan and Dustin Demri-Burns.
They’ll team up with Partridge veterans Felicity Montagu, Tim Key, Simon Greenall, Phil Cornwell, Nigel Lindsay and Darren Boyd, who’ll all be back for more madness.
The Alan Partridge Movie has been written by Coogan, Neil and Rob Gibbons, Peter Baynham and Armando Iannucci, with Declan Lowney directing. Unfortunately there isn’t too much info known about the plot, other than it will follow Alan trying to resurrect his flagging media career.
You don’t have to wait too long to find out is Alan can make a successful jump to the big screen, as it’s due out in the UK on August 13th.
