IFC Films has acquired U.S. rights to Michael Winterbottom's British road comedy The Trip starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, as they tour fine restaurants and visit various historic locations from the life of William Wordsworth in Northern England, all the whilst trying to one-up each other with celebrity impressions.

Michael Winterbottom turned the humorous results into a 6-part BBC miniseries, Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story, and the new movie The Trip, which premiered at Toronto, is culled from that marathon but features some exclusive footage.
