Amazing Alan Partridge Movie News: Release Date And Storyline Revealed!
Jurassic Park! The Alan Partridge Movie is finally going to hit cinema screens on 16 August 2013, after years of speculation on whether Steve Coogan’s finest creation would ever get its cinematic break.
It's been revealed that the long-awaited film will be set in Alan’s beloved Norwich, killing rumours that Alan will move Stateside for his big screen outing.
The script is still being written and shooting won’t start until 7 January 2013. But our excitement of more Partridge can’t be contained. Back of the net!
The storyline sees Alan's employer - North Nolfolk Digital - being taken over by a bigger media corporation, with Alan will attempt to salvage his public career and "negotiate a potentially violent turn of events".
With the film showing Partridge’s fight against a big media corporation, we can surely expect a few digs at the industry and parallels with Coogan’s own dealings with the media in his recent appearances at the Leveson Enquiry.
It seems like a movie is a kind of natural progression for Alan, after becoming a legend on radio, TV and in literature.
The film will have to deal with huge expectations from Partridge fans. But we suspect after his return on Sky Atlantic in Alan Partridge: Welcome To The Places Of My Life, that the film won't let us down. Jackanackanory!
