When Odysseus left Troy it took him ten years to get back to his home in Ithaca. Steve and Rob have only six days on their own personal odyssey in The Trip to Greece. On the way they argue about tragedy and comedy, astronomy and biology, myth, history, democracy and the meaning of life! Featuring locations such as: Temple of Apollo at Delphi, the Ancient Agora of Athens, the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, the unique island of Hydra, the Caves of Diros, Nestor’s Palace, Niokastro Fortress in Pylos, and Ancient Stagira, as well as a lot of shooting in restaurants and hotels in Athens, Hydra, Lesvos, Chalkidiki, Pelion, Kavala, and at the Peloponnese.
The film is written and directed by Michael Winterbottom, who also recently worked with Coogan on the satire film Greed. It is produced by Melissa Parmenter. The film was supposed to make its U.S. debut at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival before it was cancelled.
Like the first three installments in the The Trip series, The Trip to Greece had also debuted as a 6-episode sitcom in the UK in March and will once again be edited into a feature film for the U.S.
