The story follows the attempts to stall a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union, ordered by a power-hungry United States Air Force general. In the movie, Peter Sellers plays all three central characters: an RAF officer, a fictional President of the United States (called Merkin Muffley) and the titular Strangelove, a scientist and former Nazi. How closely Iannucci's adaptation will stick to the original story is yet to be seen, but what we do know is that Coogan, like Sellers, will play all the central roles.
Dr. Strangelove opens at the Noël Coward Theatre on Tuesday 8 October 2024. Tickets are now on sale. Click here to book.
