Steve Coogan (The Trip) and John C. Reilly (Step Brothers) will play Stan and Ollie, respectively. Director Jon S. Baird says: 'I’m really proud to be able to give the film its world premiere in London; a city that’s so dear to myself and I know was to Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy'.
Stan & Ollie will premiere on 21 October at the Cineworld, Leicester Square. The event will be attended by Coogan, Reilly as well as director Baird and BAFTA award-winning writer Jeff Pope, producer Faye Ward and cast members. The film will be released on 11 January 2019.
