Directed by Michael Winterbottom (The Trip), Greed focuses on the fictional story of a retail billionaire. Set in the glamorous and celebrity-filled world of luxury fashion, the story is centred on the build-up to a spectacular 60th birthday party at an exclusive hotel on the Greek island of Mykonos.
As filming wraps on the project, the actors joining the three lead stars have been revealed. The cast list includes Stephen Fry, Sarah Solemani (Him & Her), People Just Do Nothing star Asim Chaudhry and Loaded‘s Jonny Sweet.
Film4 Head of Creative Ollie Madden comments: “We can’t think of anyone better to take on the excessive world of business moguls and the super-rich than Michael Winterbottom and Steve Coogan. Together with Sean Gray, a great production team and brilliant ensemble cast, we know they’re going to make something both funny and with a genuine sting in the tail.”
Laine Kline from Sony Pictures says: “We couldn’t be more delighted to be teaming with Film4 for this picture. Damian, Melissa and Michael have done an astronomical job assembling a brilliantly talented comic ensemble for this hilarious satire.”
Winterbottom and Coogan are long term collaborators, with the pair most recently working together on The Trip To Spain co-starring Rob Brydon. The improvised three series comedy series was inspired by Coogan and Brydon’s semi-fictionalised versions of themselves as portrayed in Winterbottom’s A Cock And Bull Story. Their other collaborations include 24 Hour Party People and The Look Of Love, both biopics tracking the rise and fall of entertainment moguls.
