Harry Potter???[edit]

OK, let's see a source for that. I can't rule it out as definite nonsense, given the diversity of his work to date, but I can't find any sources, so I've removed it for now. --KJBracey 14:33, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

Space comedy attempt[edit]

In 2005, director Michael Winterbottom and actor Steve Coogan sought to film a comedy in space. Winterbottom, who had collaborated with cinematographer Alwin H. Kuchler and production designer Mark Tildesley in the past, found out that the two crew members were working on director Danny Boyle's Sunshine in London. Winterbottom contacted producer Andrew Macdonald and inquired about the possibility of filming his comedy on the set at night when Sunshine filming was finished for the day. Macdonald initially agreed, but due to concern about damage to the set, the producer told Winterbottom that he could use the set after Sunshine completed filming. Winterbottom, Coogan, and Coogan's collaborator Patrick Marber worked to flesh out the story for the space comedy. The studio Paramount Pictures had expressed interest in financing the comedy, but as time passed, the set was not made available to Winterbottom, despite Macdonald's assurance.[1]
