Ideal: The Movie

A film based on the characters from BBC Three sitcom Ideal, which starred Johnny Vegas as lazy drug dealer Moz


A film project based on the now-axed BBC Three sitcom Ideal, which starred Johnny Vegas as a lazy drug dealer.

A news update on writer Graham Duff's website in May 2012 said: "Having written 53 episodes of his BBC TV comedy drama Ideal, Graham is now creating an Ideal feature film. The film, which follows the misfortunes of Moz (Johnny Vegas), will keep the action rooted within the Manchester weed dealer's flat."

Produced by Baby Cow. Directed by Ben Wheatley.

June 2012 update: Baby Cow executive Henry Normal told Chortle: ‘It’s going to be set in the same place, with many of the same characters. We even brought the physical set from the BBC, our co-producers on the TV series. We are aiming for it to be quite a dark psychological comedy-thriller."
