Four Lions

I have just found out that Chris Morris of The Day Today and equally excellent Brass Eye has a movie coming out:

Via: The Daily What

The great thing about Morris is that he never compromises on his chosen subject matter leading his brand of humour to be often viewed as highly-controversial: take a look at the Brass eye spoof investigation into paedophilia for confirmation of this. So the fact that he has a movie that is set around a bunch of Islamic terrorists should make for some interesting viewing.

Morris told The Sunday Times that the film will seek to do for Islamic terrorism what Dad's Army, the classic BBC comedy, did for the Nazis by showing them as "scary but also ridiculous".

Here are a couple of interviews with the man himself:
