    Steve Coogan & Rob Brydon Set To Travel Italy With Michael Winterbottom For Sequel To 'The Trip'

    Many suspected that after "Tristram Shandy: A Cock And Bull Story," if you were to get Michael Winterbottom to direct Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reading the phone book, it would almost certainly turn out to be rib-tickling stuff. The theory's been put to the test this year with "The Trip," which features the British comics playing themselves on a journey around England's Lake District eating at a series of top restaurants: not exactly "Mr. Popper's Penguins," as far as high concepts go, but it's happily turned out to be one of the best comedies of the year, and something of an indie sleeper, with clips from the film going viral. And the goo...

    Antonio Banderas, Steve Coogan, Deborah Ann Woll, Elliott Gould & Chris Messina Join 'He Loves Me'

    'The Daily Show' Correspondent Aasif Mandvi Also Circling A RoleIt says something about directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, that half a decade since they rocked the indie movie world with "Little Miss Sunshine," that they are able to assemble the kind of cast they have lined up for "He Loves Me." Written by actress Zoe Kazan, the project is a meta-strange sounding road-trip film that centers on Calvin (Paul Dano) a young novelist who achieves success early in his career but begins to face struggles. As the young protagonist follows the advice of writing the woman he thinks will love him in a bid to overcome his writer’s block, he end...

    Paul Rudd Is A Smiley Moron In First Poster For 'Our Idiot Brother'

    Even though the film received respectful, rather than rave, reviews on its Sundance bow (our own review was one of the more positive), you can't cast Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, Steve Coogan, Hugh Dancy, T.J. Miller, Adam Scott and Kathryn Hahn in a co...

    movie review: THE TRIP

    I wasn’t aware of Rob Brydon until I saw Winterbottom’s 2005 movie 'Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story', in which he and Coogan carry on a continual game of one-upmanship, mostly about their careers. I didn’t need a primer to figure out that this was based, to some degree, on their real-life rel...

    Steve Coogan & Michael Winterbottom To Team Again For 'Paul Raymond's Wonderful World Of Erotica'

    While he hasn't quite become the Dudley Moore-style megastar he once seemed likely to be, Steve Coogan's big-screen career has been modestly successful so far, not least when he collaborates with prolific British director Michael Winterbottom. In "24 Hour Party People," "A Cock and Bull Story" and "...

    Steve Coogan & Robert Sheehan Join Michael Fassbender In Punk-Rock Biopic 'Good Vibrations'

    Bronagh Gallagher Also On Board; Liam Cunningham Exits?Steve Coogan and Robert Sheehan aren't exactly strangers to the exploration of real life musical figures on film, having both starred in "24 Hour Party People" and "Killing Bono" respectively, and it looks like they're set to go down a similar p...

    Julianne Moore, Alexander Skarsgard & Steve Coogan To Star in 'What Maisie Knew'

    Scott McGehee and David Siegel are a curious directing pair. With a mere four films across over fifteen years, they've made consistently interesting work without ever quite knocking one out of the park. Their noirish racial-identity debut "Suture" is arguably their best -- championed by Steven Soderbergh, and with a terrific turn by Dennis Haysbert, it still holds up well today. Their long-awaited follow up "The Deep End" had another storming central performance, from Tilda Swinton, but had a more straightforward take on the genre, while kabbalistic spelling oddity "Bee Season," with Richard Gere, didn't really work, and the Joseph Gordon-Lev...

    Q&A: Steve Coogan & Rob Brydon Talk 'The Trip,' Differing Improv Styles And Their Onscreen Personas

    This world loves bickering buddies. From Laurel and Hardy to Jay and Silent Bob, there's plenty of fondness for comedies built around caustic and amusing back-and-forths between two people that, at the drop of a hat, either want to kill each other or cuddle. Michael Winterbottom, the man responsible for "Welcome to Sarajevo" and the harshly-and-unjustly-criticized "The Killer Inside Me," saw gold in the relationship between his star Steve Coogan ("24 Hour Party People") and friend/comedian Rob Brydon and amplified their personalities for "Tristam Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story." The result was a riot, and things went so well that the three reu...

    Tribeca Review: Michael Winterbottom's 'The Trip' A Wickedly Funny Road Trip

    Fans of British actor/comedian Steve Coogan ("I'm Alan Partridge," the outstanding lead in "24 Hour Party People") tend to fall into two camps: the Anglophile hyper-obsessives (believe me, they exist) and the casual fan where this writer finds himself (though there's probably a third and fourth leve...
