Armando Iannucci on ‘Death of Stalin,’ Trump and Leaving ‘Veep’

7 September 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Thick of It” and “Veep” creator Armando Iannucci is famous for his profane and acidic takedowns of craven and hypocritical politicians. His latest film, “The Death of Stalin,” is filled with his trademark four-letter words, and Iannucci once again takes a scythe to the powerful, but “Death,” a look at dictator’s final hours and the jockeying for control of Russia that unfolded in its aftermath, is a departure for the filmmaker. In particular, he wasn’t interested in turning Josef Stalin into Selina Meyer with a dacha.

“I went into it pushing everyone, including myself, out of their comfort zone,” Iannucci told Variety in an interview before the film premieres at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival Friday. “I was making a funny film, but I also knew that some scenes weren’t supposed to be funny, and that other scenes would be dramatic or emotional.”
