New Film and More Partridge for Coogan

Steve Coogan stars alongside Richard Gere in new film The Dinner. Coogan and Gere play estranged brothers who meet with their wives (Laura Linney and Rebecca Hall) for a dinner where ‘family drama and dark secrets are on the menu’.

See the trailer for the psychological thriller below:

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter this week, Coogan mentioned that a new Alan Partridge series is on the horizon, which could be different from Mid Morning Matters.

He said: “We’re doing some more Alan at the end of this year. He’ll return to the small screen in a way that we’re trying to devise at the moment. We’re not quite sure what that is, but we’ve got a few ideas that I’m going to keep up my sleeve at the moment. But there’ll be more Alan. There’ll be a regular appearance of Alan and some of the usual suspects.”

During the interview, he also talked about Donald Trump, commenting: “In some ways the only person on Earth who’s more Alan Partridge than Alan Partridge is Donald Trump. Even Alan Partridge would think Donald Trump is a bit much. I thought Nigel Farage was the incarnation of Alan Partridge, a nightmare version of Alan Partridge who actually wields some power, but I would have never predicted the leader of the free world would be an uber-Partridge.”

The next time Coogan will be on our TV screens is likely to be in The Trip to Spain on Sky Atlantic, which has no confirmed air date yet:
