Johnny Vegas sitcom ‘Ideal’ to be made into film

Johnny Vegas sitcom Ideal is reportedly to be made into a film.

Baby Cow, which produced the show about small-time Manchester drug dealer Moz for BBC Three, will also be behind the movie.

Graham Duff, the programme’s creator, is currently writing the script, and filming is planned for early next year.

Ben Wheatley, who directed 14 episodes of the series, will also helm the big-screen version.

Chortle quotes chief executive of Baby Cow Henry Normal as saying: “It’s going to be set in the same place, with many of the same characters. We even brought the physical set from the BBC, our co-producers on the TV series.

“We are aiming for it to be quite a dark psychological comedy-thriller.”
