Ladykillers 'homage' takes to the stage

Classic film comedy The Ladykillers is to be brought to the stage in an adaptation by Father Ted and The IT Crowd creator Graham Linehan.

One of the stars, Peter Capaldi, told BBC Breakfast it pays homage to the 1955 film but he says Linehan's re-worked script is a more edgier take on the original production.

Linehan said the action would be kept within the house and there was room within the play to have more fun with the characters.

The Ladykillers will run at the Liverpool Playhouse from 3-19 November, transferring to the Gielgud Theatre in London one week later.
