Steve Coogan The Look Of Love

There are a few filmmakers as prolific and diverse working these days as Michael Winterbottom, and even though he just dropped his latest effort "Everyday" on the festival circuit this fall, he's already getting ready unleash his next film, "The Look Of Love."

Formerly titled "The King Of Soho," and changed after a legal tussle with a rival project, the film is now headed to the finish line and a couple of new pics and a poster have arrived. Steve Coogan stars in the true story of Paul Raymond -- a pornographer, strip club owner and impresario who managed to accumulate a fortune of close to £650 million (or just over a billion dollars) after buying up property in the central London area of Soho. Anna Friel and Imogen Poots, also feature, with the former playing will Raymond's wife Jean, and the latter his tragic daughter Debbie, who died of a heroin overdose in 1992.

"Like '24 Hour Party People,' it's a very British story about an eccentric character at the centre of pivotal events in British culture," Coogan told Empire. "I love the film. It has that strange combination of comedy and tragedy that Michael Winterbottom manages to pull off with a real deftness of touch. Like very few films these days it's actually about something without being portentous. Oh and there's lots of naked ladies in it too!"

Sounds good to us. "The Look Of Love" opens on March 8, 2013. No U.S. date yet.
