Steve Coogan film begins UK/Greece shoot

Steve Coogan Filming is underway on a new feature starring Steve Coogan that satirises the super-rich. 

Michael Winterbottom of Revolution Films directs the untitled film (previously known as Greed) for Film4 and Sony International.

Coogan reportedly pays a self-centred billionaire with David Mitchell as a journalist hired to write his biography.

The six-week shoot is split between London and Greece. Melissa Parmenter and Damian Jones produce. 

Winterbottom and Coogan are regular colleagues, with three series of The Trip having been filmed for TV then edited into feature films. 

Other collaborations include The Look of Love, in which Coogan played Soho porn king Paul Raymond and Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story.
