Tropic Thunder team reunite for TV

Ben Stiller could be reuniting with Steve Coogan

Tropic Thunder's Ben Stiller, Steve Coogan and Justin Theroux are reuniting to work on a new TV show.

Documental, a half-hour comedy pilot written and directed by Tropic Thunder co-writer and executive producer Justin, is to be filmed in London for US station HBO, starring Justin and Steve, Deadline reports.

Justin will play a documentary filmmaker who tracks down his idol, an equally inept filmmaker played by Alan Partridge star Steve, and documents his return to the craft.

The pair will also produce the show with Ben who directed, co-wrote, produced and starred in Tropic Thunder with Steve.

If the pilot is a success, it will be a series debut for the British actor in America.

Steve's popular comedy character Alan Partridge is returning in the form of online episodes, and he is currently starring with Rob Brydon in his new BBC Two show, The Trip.

In the US he is mainly known for his film, including Night At The Museum and its sequel, which also star Ben.

Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
