Iannucci reveals ‘Out of the Window’ storyline

Armando Iannucci has today revealed details on his latest film idea, and as we have come to expect from the great man, it sounds brilliant.

The film is titled ‘Out of the Window’, it is set to be made by BBC films, who have said that the film is likely to have a significant US casting.

‘Out of the Window’ has a budget of £13.5 million at the moment.

Iannucci has said that the film is set to be a slapstick comedy in the style of early Woody Allen.

“It’s the story of a guy who works in a glass-fronted office building and one day he scratches his armpit. Somebody films it, puts it on YouTube with a soundtrack of monkey noises,” Iannucci explained.

“It ruins his life. So this guy spends the rest of the film trying to track down the b**tard who made him known the world over as Scratchy Monkey.”

Coming off the back of the fantastic ‘In the Loop’ this will have alot of people interested, Iannucci is a giant of British comedy, who at the moment can do no wrong.

Iannucci has also recently revealed that he is set to edit the new Alan Partridge online episodes.
