The £1 million film of Stella Street is to be released straight to video.

Columbia Tristar are to issue the movie, starring Phil Cornwell, John Sessions and Ronni Ancona, on DVD and video March 22.

The plot of sees the impersonated celebrities, who live in the same anonymous suburb, lose their wealth after being conned by a criminal boss.

The celebs, including Michael Caine, Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino and Mick Jagger, then take on menial jobs to survive, as well as giving tours of their homes and acting out scenes from their film to starstuck tourists.

The DVD, priced £19.99, also boasts a number of extras, including a spoof documentary about the supposedly lost Michael Caine movie Bongo In The Congo, a 'making of' film, plus 'Caine' leading a guided tour around Soho, reminiscing about the Swinging Sixties.

A poor-quality QuickTime trailer can be seen here.
