AHA – Alan Partridge The Movie To Be Set In America
Steve Coogan has revealed that Alan Partridge The Movie will take his pedantic radio-host to America, where he will hopefully embark on a Boratesque tour of the states.
While chatting to Empire the comedian said that an official announcement would be made about the movie in the next couple of months.
“We’re doing it in the States, but I’m not going to try and Americanise it, I wouldn’t try to do the same observational stuff here that I do in Britain.” said Coogan.
“I’m not going to come over here and go, ‘Right, now I’m going to try and invent five different characters who are all American,’ because I’m not steeped in American culture. It wouldn’t work.
“I’m so ingrained in British culture that for me to observe the minutiae of being British in all its different ways is very easy. I couldn’t claim to do that here, and if I did they’d end up being caricatures. It’ll be a British fool/idiot character in a movie that should appeal to everybody.”
