Earlier this year fans were bowled over by the news that bungling broadcaster Alan Partridge was set for his own feature outing. Now a press release confirms that it will hit UK cinemas in August 2013.

'The Alan Partridge Movie' will follow Steve Coogan’s iconic character as he tries to salvage his public career while negotiating a potentially violent turn of events at North Norfolk Digital Radio.

The film is being distributed by Anglo-French firm StudioCanal, with additional funding from BBC Films and the BFI.





Speaking in character as the infamous Norwich resident, Coogan praised the cross-Channel collaboration: "This is without doubt the greatest Anglo-French co-operation since the Normandy landings. This time, the heroes aren't Allied servicemen - they're motion picture financiers, who are equally brave."

In a typical Partridge non-sequitur he continued: "I'd also like to add that 'canal' - or, in English, 'canal' - is a transportation system close to my heart. In the late 18th century, this new method of logistics halved the price of coal in many English cities. If StudioCanal's investment can achieve even a fraction of that, I will be delighted."
