Steve Coogan - Steve Coogan To Revive Alan Partridge For Movie Sequel

Steve Coogan's comic creation Alan Partridge is returning to the big screen for a follow-up to his film debut.

Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, which features the actor as a socially awkward local radio/Tv personality, topped the U.K. box office upon its release last August (13).

Coogan went on to win great acclaim for another movie project, Philomena, which garnered him a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar nomination earlier this year (14), but now he is returning to his comedy roots for a Partridge follow up.

Henry Normal, co-founder of Coogan's production company Baby Cow, tells Britain's Guardian newspaper, "We are planning a sequel (to Alpha Papa), yes, that will be great."

The beloved character debuted on British radio in 1991, before moving to Tv in 1994.
