Stan & Ollie trailer: Steve Coogan and John C Reilly are Laurel and Hardy
Steve Coogan and John C Reilly may not be the first actors that spring to mind when it comes to making a film about Laurel and Hardy but they take the lead roles in the forthcoming Stan & Ollie biopic. It's director John S Baird's first film since 2013's Filth and it looks at the latter years of the double act's careers with Coogan and Reilly both fitting the roles well, judging by the trailer. Take a look at the trailer for Stan & Ollie above to see for yourself.
With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) – a formidable double act in their own right - the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.
Jon S. Baird (Filth) is directing, with the supporting cast featuring Danny Huston, Rufus Jones and Susy Kane.
Stan & Ollie will be playing at this year's London Film Festival before arriving in UK cinemas January 11th 2019.
