Steve Coogan confirms Alan Partridge movie shoots next year

In a chat with The Playlist, Steve Coogan has confirmed that the long-awaited Alan Partridge movie will shoot next year.

While promoting The Trip , which is screening during the Tribeca Film Festival, Coogan claimed that he was in the midst of writing a big-screen spin-off for his best-loved character.

Speaking about the Partridge movie, Coogan stated: “We left it behind for a while, but we came back to it because we got a few ideas.

“We’re writing it right now, going to shoot it next year. Don’t know who will direct it, but Pete Baynham [ Borat ] and Armando Iannucci are writing it with me. We’ve already started it.”

Alan recently returned for Mid Morning Matters , a series of Fosters-sponsored webisodes that were surprisingly high-quality.

The character was born on the radio and made his first TV appearance on The Day Today . He flew solo in faux-chatshow Knowing Me, Knowing You before coming into his own in I’m Alan Partridge .

As every incarnation has provided endlessly-quotable hilarity, a Partridge movie has been at the top of fans’ wishlists since forever.

Looks like we won’t have to wait too much longer…
