Although Laurel and Hardy's career has been well-documented by filmmakers, the upcoming biopic 'Stan and Ollie' focuses in on their ill-fated tour of Great Britain in the '50s as their star-power was effectively on the wane.
Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly are set to play Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy respectively, with 'Filth' director Jon S. Baird directing a screenplay from 'Philomena' scribe Jeff Pope. The movie has been lined up to close the BFI London Film Festival in October 21st, and will see a release here in Ireland on January 11th, 2019.
While no trailer has landed as of yet, this promotional image has dropped and really does show just how much Reilly and Coogan have got the costumes and makeup down for their roles.
Take a look.
