After unveiling "The Trip" last year and with "Trishna" arriving this summer, the prolific and versatile Michael Winterbottom shows no sign of slowing down, and is currently-lensing "The King Of Soho," his biopic of porn baron Paul Raymond that'll reunite the helmer with regular collaborator Steve Coogan. Courtesy of some set photos, we now have our first look at the actor as Raymond as well as first glimpses at Tamsin Egerton and Anna Friel as Raymond's mistress and wife, respectively.

Coogan Raymond King Of Soho

After unveiling "The Trip" last year and with "Trishna" arriving this summer, the prolific and versatile Michael Winterbottom shows no sign of slowing down, and is currently-lensing "The King Of Soho," his biopic of porn baron Paul Raymond that'll reunite the helmer with regular collaborator Steve Coogan. Courtesy of some set photos, we now have our first look at the actor as Raymond as well as first glimpses at Tamsin Egerton and Anna Friel as Raymond's mistress and wife, respectively.

Described by producer Andrew Eaton as a "combination of Larry Flynt and Hugh Hefner," Raymond was 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. Certainly a character and story which should make a fascinating period drama-comedy and, no doubt, another showcase of the excellent Winterbottom-Coogan partnership ("24 Hour Party People," "A Cock And Bull Story," "The Trip").

Imogen Poots, Chris Addison, Dara O'Briain and Sarah Solemani also co-star in the pic, which was written by "Control" and "Nowhere Boy" scribe Matt Greenhalgh. Can't wait to see what comes of this. [DailyMail/Zimbio/DailyMail]
