Michael Douglas and Matt Damon wow the Cannes film fest as Liberace and lover.
King Of Soho tiring for director
Steve Coogan has the lead role in King Of Soho
Michael Winterbottom has revealed shooting King Of Soho has been exhausting - because of the numerous costume changes.
The upcoming biopic, which is set from the 1950s until the 1990s, stars Steve Coogan as strip club owner Paul Raymond.
"It's quite a sprawling story - it's set from the 1950s through to the 1990s and there are endless scenes of women, drugs and debauchery. We had to go from the 1950s to 1990s every day so there would be two or three different hair, make-up and costume changes," he said.
Michael - who also directed Trishna starring Freida Pinto - said the film has finished shooting.
"We're at the beginning of the editing. I'm just recovering from the shoot and then we'll get going on the edit," he said.
The filmmaker has enjoyed reuniting with Steve, who he previously worked with before on 24 Hour Party People and A Cock And Bull Story.
"It was Steve Coogan's idea. I had worked with him before, and he said a few years ago that he would like to play Paul Raymond," he revealed.
"There's quite a big overlap between aspects of Steve's life and aspects of Paul's life - they're both northern schoolboys with Catholic upbringings - and I think he felt he could identify with the world Paul Raymond was from and lived in."
Asked about Steve's transformation into the porn baron, Michael joked: "Mentally, I think he was there already but physically, it was quite time-consuming."
Trishna is released by Artificial Eye on DVD and Blu-ray on July 9.
