Alan Partridge movie shooting this year

A-ha! The long gestating Alan Partridge movie will begin shooting this year, says co-writer Armando Iannucci.

Iannucci, currently promoting his new TV show Veep, broke the news to Empire.

“At the moment it’s ‘The Alan Partridge Movie‘ but that’s just a working title. [The script] is written [but] we’re always rewriting, rewriting and rewriting.”

Steve Coogan will, of course, return as the beloved/cursed television presenter. He starred as the character in two seasons of the TV show I’m Alan Partridge, resurrecting him for a number of special appearances and even a stand up tour in the 10 years since the show last aired.

Declan Lowney (Father Ted) will direct. The film is likely to hit cinemas in 2013.
