In addition to may be the most anticipated British comedy of the summer, The World’s End, there’s also the big-screen adaptation of the popular BBC TV series ‘I’m Alan Partridge’. After the first brief trailer, a full trailer has arrived over at MSN for Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa ahead of its August release.
Steve Coogan (Tropic Thunder, The Other Guys) will reprise his infamous television role as fictional lovable radio DJ in Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa directed by Father Ted’s Declan Lowney and co-written by Coogan, Peter Baynham (Borat), and Armando Iannucci (Veep).
The film features an ensemble cast of British comedy stalwarts such as Darren Boyd (The World’s End), Nigel Lindsay (Four Lions), Jessica Knappett (The Inbetweeners Movie) and Anna Maxwell Martin (Bleak House), alongside ‘I’m Alan Partridge’ regulars: long-suffering PA Lynn (Felicity Montagu), Geordie BP garage worker Michael (Simon Greenall), DJ Dave Clifton (Phil Cornwell) and Tim Key as Side-Kick Simon.
Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa opens in the U.K. on August 7th, while there’s no U.S. release date as of yet.
Check out the second trailer for the upcoming comedy spin-off previously described as ‘a bit Dog Day Afternoon and a bit Network’.
Alan is in Norwich and he’s DJing on North Norfolk Digital, but a big horrible company called Gordale Media comes along to take over the radio station, rob it of all its personality and change it from North Norfolk Digital to ‘Shape’.
