Coogan Eyes Partridge Movie

British comedian STEVE COOGAN is to find out in the next month (Mar10) whether his famed creation, ALAN PARTRIDGE, will be heading to the big screen.
The Night at the Museum star rose to fame in the U.K. series about a failed TV and radio presenter, before moving on to Hollywood films including Tropic Thunder and Around the World in 80 Days.
Coogan is keen to reprise his breakthrough role for a movie - but only if he can work with original writers Armando Iannucci and Peter Baynham.
He says, "This is kind of make or break. In a month it'll be very clear whether we're going to do it or not. You have to get all the right elements. We're not going to do it unless we think we can do something really good."
