Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are packing their bags for another Trip.
The comedic duo who have already made three cinematic culinary tours are about to add a fourth film into the popular road movie series.
Co-lead Brydon confirmed today on twitter that a fourth installment, titled The Trip To Greece, was indeed in the works, posting a picture of himself and Coogan, fittingly, having lunch together.

Last month, Coogan teased the idea that a fourth film was in the works on a British chat show while doing the promotional rounds for his latest film Stan & Ollie that could shoot in 2019.
If you are not already familiar with the three previous Trip films featuring Brydon and Coogan, shame on you. Basically a showcase for two of Britain’s sharpest comedic minds to goof off in exotic locales, the series started as simply The Trip, a six-episode series for British television in 2010 directed by Michael Winterbottom with the pair playing fictionalized versions of themselves touring the North Country ostensibly to write restaurant reviews. But that was just a skeleton to hang the meat of the show – the two friends just comically riffing off of each other over plates of exquisitely prepared food. The six episodes were boiled down to a two hour feature film distributed by IFC Films in the US. The television series/film proved such a success that the three teamed up for two more Trips – The Trip To Italy (2014) and The Trip To Spain (2017).
In addition to their sharp comedic minds, both Coogan and Brydon are incredible mimics and some of the highlights of the films are when the two try to top each other’s impressions of the likes of Michael Caine or Sean Connery.
