The comic is taking on the role in an as-yet-untitled movie about Raymond's life, alongside Anna Friel, who will play his wife.

Coogan has already been embroiled in a legal battle with Raymond's son Howard over the name of the film, and now the porn boss' granddaughter Cheyenne reveals she is less than impressed that the Tropic Thunder star is playing her beloved grandfather.

She tells British newspaper Daily Mail, "I am not a fan of Steve Coogan. He doesn't appeal to my sense of humour and I would not have chosen him to play my grandfather.

"I was very close to my grandfather and they don't look similar at all. Just because you put someone in a collar and a big coat, it doesn't mean they look like them."

Howard Raymond is making a rival film, The King of Soho, with The Avengers star Tom Hiddleston in the lead role.
