Why Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd’s New Movie Proved an ‘Ideal’ Film for Banker’s Backing

Why Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd’s New Movie Proved an ‘Ideal’ Film for Banker’s Backing
In 2007, Steve Coogan starred in and Andrew Fleming directed the offbeat comedy “Hamlet 2” — a film most remembered for a Sundance bidding war won by Fox Searchlight, which didn’t come close to recouping its $10 million payout at the box office. But the indie market has a short memory, and Coogan is starring in another Fleming pic, backed by a pair of eager Canadian financers.

Coogan stars with Paul Rudd in “An Ideal Home,” which is going into production on May 11 — the opening day of Cannes. They play a bickering couple with an extravagant life: Coogan is a demanding celebrity and Rudd his quieter partner. Their lives are turned upside-down when, at a dinner party, Coogan’s character is confronted with the grandson he never knew he had. With nowhere else to go, the couple reluctantly decide to take him in.

It’s a story rich with situations that reflect the zeitgeist.
