Latest Film: A Laurel and Hardy biopic is coming……guess who is playing the legendary duo?



Never thought a Laurel and Hardy story would be posted on this website, but as everyone loves the legendary comedy duo, its with great pleasure that we can say, a new film is coming…..its impossible of course for it to be a brand new caper (even though how we would love it), but a long overdue biopic, and the casting has been announced.

Steve Coogan and John C Reilly are playing the duo in Jon S Baird’s upcoming Stan & Ollie which will focus on the friendship of them both.

Philomena?’s Jeff Pope is writing the script and he admits the pressure he is under.

“Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy are my heroes, when I watch their movies, in my head it is forever a Saturday morning and I am 6 years old watching the TV at home, utterly spellbound.”

“I am aware of the huge responsibility of bringing their characters to life, but I have not treated the boys with kid gloves or looked at them through rose-coloured specs. They are living and breathing characters, with flaws and shortcomings.”

It be interesting to see if Coogan and Reilly can bring the essence of the duo to the screen in a film that is being developed by the BBC.

No release date as of yet!

Since my mother sat me down at the age of five years of age and watched a little called Halloween, I have been hooked on horror. There is no other genre that gets me excited and takes me to the edge of entertainment. I watch everything from old, new, to cheap and blockbusters, but I promise all my readers that I will always give an honest opinion, and I hope whoever reads this review section, will find a film that they too can love as much as I do! Have fun reading, and please DO HAVE NIGHTMARES!!!!!!
