Alan goes to Hollywood

Partridge film gets a US release

The Alan Partridge movie Alpha Papa is to get an American release – but not until 2014.

The Steve Coogan film, which is now in UK cinemas, will get a premiere at the 2013 New York Film Festival next month, ahead of a limited nationwide release early next year.

Rights have been picked up by US distributor Magnolia Pictures, which will release it as simply Alan Partridge.

The movie was produced by Coogan’s Baby Cow company with Studiocanal, which negotiated the US deal.
