Steve Coogan is reprising his role from the original series – because you just can’t do Alan Partridge without Steve Coogan – and the Alan Partridge movie will be landing on the big screen this summer.
Up until now, we hadn’t seen anything official from the film. But that has all changed!
Alan Partridge has had many ups and downs in his life. National television broadcaster. Responsible for killing a guest on live TV. Local radio broadcaster. A nervous breakdown in Dundee. His self-published book,’Bouncing Back’, subsequently remaindered and pulped.
ALAN PARTRIDGE: ALPHA PAPA portrays the events of the greatest low-to-high-ebb spectrum in his life to date – specifically how he tries to salvage his public career while negotiating a potentially violent turn of events at North Norfolk Digital Radio.
Felicity Montagu, Tim Key, Simon Greenall, Phil Cornwell, Nigel Lindsay, and Darren Boyd return alongside Coogan for the movie. And joining them will be Colm Meaney, Anna Maxwell Martin, Monica Dolan, Sean Pertwee, and Dustin Demri-Burns.
Declan Lowney (Alan Partridge on Open Books with Martin Bryce) is behind the camera, directing from a script co-written by Coogan, Armando Iannucci, Peter Baynham, and Neil and Rob Gibbons.
Any collaboration between the likes of Steve Coogan, Armando Iannucci, and everyone on board here is one not to be missed. Here’s the first trailer to show you exactly why not, along with the first official still from the movie.
