It will likely add some extra spice to his upcoming comedy, which brings together all star cast. Steve Buscemi, Andrea Riseborough, Olga Kurylenko, Paddy Considine, Simon Russell Beale, Rupert Friend, Michael Palin, and Jeffrey Tambor all feature in the adaption of the French graphic novel by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin, that takes a comedic look at Stalin’s last days, exploring the chaos of the regime after his death in 1953 following 30 years of iron-fisted rule over the Soviet Union.
