British comedy actor Steve Coogan is planning to resurrect his classic TV character ALAN PARTRIDGE - in a new big-budget movie.

Coogan, who stars alongside Jackie Chan in new film AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS, is hoping studio bosses will jump at the chance to bring his spoof radio DJ character from the cult British television series to the big screen.

Coogan says, "People think I want to move on but I want to do a film with him.

"I like the idea of him being involved in a terrorist siege with him acting as a go-between."
