Steve Coogan Joins Punk Biopic “Good Vibrations”

Steve Coogan is due for some teenage kicks in 70's punk Biopic with Michael Fassbender and Robert Sheehan.

Hilarity peddler Steve Coogan rocked into stardom with “24 Hour Party People” and his portrayal of the British music scene’s now legendary impresario, Tony Wilson. The Playlist (via ScreenDaily) reports that he’s joined the cast of another UK music flick, this time about Belfast’s godfather of punk, Terri Hooley.

Hooley’s tale centers around the record store he founded in the early 70′s called Good Vibrations, which naturally became a record label. The bands Hooley signed are now largely forgotten — The Moondogs, Victim, The Outcasts, and The Shapes. But one night the highly influential John Peel got his hands on one of Hooley’s acts and played their single on his infinitely popular radio show. The band was The Undertones, the song was “Teenage Kicks,” and the rest is punk history.

Coogan joins Richard Dormer who plays Hooley along with Michael Fassbender, and Robert Sheehan. Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa who also directed Sheehan in “Cherrybomb” helm the film, with Andrew Eaton (“24 Hour Party People”) and members of Irish band Snow Patrol producing.
