The new film by Armando Iannucci, the creator of The Thick Of It and Veep, now has a UK distributor, meaning it will hopefully arrive in cinemas soon.
Distributors eOne have picked up the rights for the UK.
The film is based on graphic novel The Death Of Stalin by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin, and is set in the days following the Russian leader’s stroke in 1953 as his core team of ministers tussle for control.
Steve Buscemi stars with Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Rupert Friend, Jason Isaacs, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Palin, Andrea Riseborough, Paul Whitehouse, Jeffrey Tambor and Adrian McLoughlin.
Now we await a release date.
