Forget the Olympics. 2013 is the big one. After years of anticipation, the Alan Partridge movie will be hitting the silver screen.
Executive Producer Armando Iannucci has announced that shooting will begin later in the year after a final tweaking of the screenplay. Alongside Iannucci and Coogan on the writing team are Peter Baynham and Neil and Rob Gibbons. Declan Downey of Father Ted fame will direct.
With the camera adding ten pounds, it is thought that Alan will be laying off the Toblerone in preparation for his big role.
