Ant-Man and Alan Partridge are moving in together, sort of. Fortitude International has added dramedy An Ideal Home to its EFM slate with Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan starring. Andrew Fleming (Hamlet 2, The Craft) wrote and is directing. Pre-production is currently underway with Remstar Studios and National Bank of Canada co-financing. UTA Independent Film Group and WME are repping U.S. rights.
Rudd and Coogan play a bickering couple leading an extravagant life. Coogan’s Erasmus is a demanding, popular celebrity, and Paul (Rudd) is his more hesitant partner and sidekick. But when the grandson Erasmus never knew he had shows up at their fancy dinner party with nowhere else to go, the couple reluctantly takes him in.
Coogan’s Philomena producer Gabriella Tana is producing with Maria Theresa Arida, Maxime Remillard and Aaron Ryder. Clark Peterson and Lisa Wolofsky are exec producing.
Rudd’s next up in Captain America: Civil War, donning his Ant-Man costume. Coogan is part of several films being proffered in Berlin including Oren Moverman’s The Dinner.
