Steve Bendelack (“Mr Bean’s Holiday”) is set to direct “The Harry Hill Movie” which begins production next week in the United Kingdom.
UK TV personality Harry Hill plays himself as he goes on a road trip to Blackpool with his petrol drinking Nan (Julie Walters), all while being pursued by a lunatic vet (Simon Bird).
Along the way, Harry falls in love with an undersea shell person (Sheridan Smith), and gets into a fight with his evil twin Otto (Matt Lucas). Jim Broadbent and Julian Barratt also star.
Hill, Jon Foster and James Lamont penned the script with a late 2013 release expected.
