Winterbottom! Coogan! Brydon! THE TRIP TO ITALY Starts Shooting This Week!
Following the runaway success of The Trip - the Michael Winterbottom directed BBC comedy starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon as somewhat fictionalized versions of themselves on a food tour of northern England - word has been circulating for a while about a follow up in which the duo pack up and do it all again in Italy. Yes, it's happening and more to the point it is scheduled to begin principal photography a mere three days from now.
Coogan, Brydon and Winterbottom all return in their respective roles, with The Trip To Italy once again existing as both a six part BBC comedy series and a shorter feature film. Tasty.
