Marc will shortly commence filming on Harry Hill's debut comedy film titled THE HARRY HILL MOVIE.

Shooting begins  12th May 2013 - The comedy will feature a host of comedy stars including Matt Lucas, Sheridan Smith, Julie Walters, Simon Bird and Julian Baratt, from a script by Hill, 
Jon Foster and James Lamont (BAFTA-winning writers of TV's The Amazing World of Gumball).

The film will be Produced by Robert Jones (Run Fatboy, Run) and Directed by Steve Bendelack (Mr Bean's Holiday, Little Britain, The League of Gentlemen).

Lucky Features will produce it whilst Entertainment Film Distributors are financing the film and will be releasing it at the end of 2013 across the U.K. and Ireland

"The plot revolves around a road trip Harry takes with his petrol-drinking Nan, to be played by Walters, after their pet hamster falls ill.
Bird plays a lunatic vet in pursuit; Lucas is Harry’s evil twin; and Smith is a seductive undersea shell person. The film – which culminates in a fight on top of The Blackpool Tower – also feature canine superstars The Dachsund Five, and indie rock band The Magic Numbers, who run a B’n’B.
The producers say it is ‘based on a true story’."
