Sopranos star Gandolfini and Steve Coogan are In the Loop

“No Impact Man” follows the Beaven family as they abandon their high consumption Fifth Avenue lifestyle in an attempt to make a no-net environmental impact for the course of one year.

James Gandolfini, Steve Coogan and Tom Hollander have joined the cast of Brit satirist Armando Iannucci’s feature directorial debut ‘In the Loop’.

The film, which also stars Chris Addison, Peter Capaldi and Gina McKee, is a black comedy about the attempts by a U.S. general, played by Gandolfini, and British politico, played by Hollander, to stop the U.S. president and British prime minister from launching an ill-advised war. 

Principal photography began this week. The film will be shot in various locations including London, Washington D.C. and New York. Iannucci is responsible, along with Steve Coogan, for the hit British comedy series “Knowing Me, Knowing You with Alan Partridge.”

“We hope that ‘In the Loop’ will make you cry with laughter — and possibly fear — as it takes you behind the scenes in the heart of the global political village,” said producer Kevin Loader.
