One might be wondering what the creator of Veep, In The Loop, and The Thick of It has been doing since he has handed off the show to the very capable hands of David Mandel.
Well, Armando Iannucci has been making a satire of the last days of Stalin that were filled with high ranking in-fighting, a particular specialty of his. A cast boasting Steve Buscemi, Michael Palin, and Jeffrey Tambor is something to get very excited for as well.
It would seem that these days that any of Iannucci’s work is applicable to the political, global, cultural climate more than it has ever been. With a focus on authoritarian figure to boot, this feeling raises our anticipation for Armando’s Death of Stalin that will get a U.S. release thanks to IFC’s recent purchase of the North American rights at Berlinale 2017.
