A couple of years back we found out that Steve Coogan (Philomena, Alan Partridge, Tropic Thunder) and John C. Reilly (Chicago, Gangs of New York, Step Brothers) would be playing the legendary comedy duo Laurel and Hardy in a movie titled Stan & Ollie. Now Entertainment One UK has released an official trailer for the movie.
Stan & Ollie tells the true story of what ended up being the final chapter of the comedy duo’s run as performers. Shirley Henderson (24 Hour Party People, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), Nina Arianda (Midnight in Paris, Florence Foster Jenkins), Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 30 Days of Night), and Rufus Jones (The Foreigner, Paddington) star alongside Coogan and Reilly.
Continue below for a full synopsis and to check out the official trailer.
A pair of actors have been chosen to step into the massive shoes of legendary comedy duo Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, best known simply as Laurel and Hardy, in a movie about the pair titled Stan & Ollie.
Laurel is set to be played by Steve Coogan, best known for his work on Philomena (for which he scored two Academy Award nominations), Alan Partridge, Tropic Thunder, the Night at the Museum movies, and more. He was recently seen in the short-lived Showtime series Happyish. Hardy will be played by John C. Reilly, who is best known for his roles first in dramas like Chicago (for which he was nominated for an Oscar), Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and Gangs of New York, and then comedies like Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Step Brothers, and Wreck-It Ralph. He was also seen in a smaller role in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
