Sony Pictures International Productions and Film4 are producing the movie and planning on a fall shoot. Melissa Parmenter is producing for Revolution Films with Damian Jones of DJ Films.
Winterbottom and Parmenter have collaborated on the British TV series “The Trip,” “The Trip to Italy” and “The Trip to Spain,” which stars Coogan with Rob Brydon. The three series, all which feature the actors doing Michael Caine impresssions, have been edited into feature films.
Coogan will next be seen in the Laurel and Hardy biopic “Stan and Ollie” with John C. Reilly. Winterbottom’s “The Wedding guest,” starring Dev Patel, is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival.
