ComingSoon.net – Winterbottom & Coogan Reunite for Murder: Director Michael Winterbottom revealed this week that his company Revolution has optioned Murder in Samarkand, the memoirs of Craig Murray, the former UK Ambassador to Uzbekistan. Comedian Steve Coogan is in the frame to play Murray, who was sacked in 2004 after drawing attention to torture and human rights abuses in Uzbekistan.
UPDATE – How long do you think it will be before The Downing Street Echo starts asking the question; “When did Steve Coogan stop being funny?”… before coming to the ‘obvious’ conclusion that it was when he ‘lost’ his direction by finding one?
