The real-life story of the demise of comedic duo, Laurel and Hardy, is the focus of the upcoming Stan & Ollie. Directed By relative newcomer Jon S. Baird. We're getting the first look at the film ahead of its January release.
Make no mistake, this movie doesn't look like it will be a comedy. Sure, it will have the duo playing the hits on stage, but this story is centered around the failure of the team's career and the break-up that followed. Spoiler Alert?
John C. Reilly (Step Brothers, Boogie Nights) disappears into the role of Oliver Hardy. The Academy Award nominated actor is joined by Academy Award nominated writer, Steve Coogan.
