Comedians Vic and Bob are bringing their absurdist humour to the big screen in The Glove, the cast appears to be coming together.

There I’d a long lineage of British comedians making he leap from small screen to the big, from Cannon and Ball in The Boys In Blue to the big collared buffoonery of Harry Hill in The Harry Hill Movie.

Now, legendary double act Jim Moir (aka Vic Reeves) and national treasure Bob Mortimer are bringing their surreal silliness to the big screen with The Glove.

The film will follow two best friends, who go on a road trip to recover Michael Jackson’s lost training glove in order to pay off a huge debt owed to their obnoxious landlord.

In an exclusive report by the British Comedy Guide, it was revealed (through a picture of a script read through) that joining Reeves and Mortimer in the cast will be fellow comedians Dan Renton Skinner (better known as Shooting Stars regular Angelos Epithemiou), Bobby Mair, Matt Berry, Kevin Eldon, Rob Carter, Sunil Patel and Spencer Jones. Brian Cox, Gina McKee and Lauren O’Rourke are also set to star.

Noel Fielding, Matt Lucas, Paul Whitehouse (with whom Mortimer makes the wonderful show Gone Fishing With Mortimer and Whitehouse), Morgana Robinson, Tony Pitts and Tony Way were pictured at a readthrough from a few years ago, it is unknown if they are all attached to the film, with Way being the only one of those listed on production company Studio POW’s website.

Written by Reeves and Mortimer themselves, the film will be directed by Tim Kirkby, who is perhaps the only person in history who can say they’ve worked with critically acclaimed comedian Stewart Lee (on Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle) and Jackass star Johnny Knoxville (on 2018’s Action Point).

It was reported last year that Reeves intends to retire from comedy after completing the film, which is due to go into production this year.
