After the makers of The Inbetweeners said they’d never make another movie, the confirmation comes in that shooting is set to begin shooting on the sequel to the 2011 mega-hit next week on 7th December!
The creators of the show Iain Morris and Damon Beesley will direct and have also written the script. They’d previously stated that the 4 lovable wallies had nowhere else to go now that they’ve all finished high-school but evidently there is more to tell and quite frankly we’re delighted! All members of the main cast will retrn including James Buckley, Blake Harrison, Joe Thomas and Simon Bird.
We knew this second movie was coming but it’s still nice to get the green light on a shoot-start-date. While checking this article, my use of the word ‘wallies’ has tried to suggest ‘willies’… how appropriate!
Here’s the full press release. Who’s excited?!
THE INBETWEENERS MOVIE 2 TO START SHOOTING 7th DECEMBER
SHOOTING IN AUSTRALIA & UK
CREATORS IAIN MORRIS & DAMON BEESLEY TO DIRECT
2nd December 2013 – The follow-up to the UK’s most successful comedy film of all time reunites the hapless Jay, Neil, Simon & Will in Australia. The Inbetweeners Movie 2 will start shooting in Australia on 7th December before moving to the UK in January.
The Inbetweeners creators, Iain Morris & Damon Beesley, will be directing the comedy, having once again written the script. Spencer Millman (“The Mighty Boosh”,”Man Down”) is producing the film.
Iain & Damon commented: “We can’t say too much as we don’t want to spoil the jokes for you, but what we can exclusively reveal is there will be kangaroos. And Australians. And possibly koalas.” Oh and obviously Jay, Will, Neil and Simon providing they’re let into the country. Thanks so much for all your support, we’re hoping to deliver a film that you’ll enjoy even more than the last one”
Distributor EFD has also confirmed that 2014’s most anticipated comedy will hit cinemas across the UK and Ireland next August.
The film will be produced by Bwark Productions, a Zodiak Media company, who will co-finance with Channel 4/Film4. Entertainment Film Distributors will distribute the film in the UK.
Having started life on E4, the multi award-winning series went on to enjoy massive success with its debut film, The Inbetweeners Movie, which was fully financed by Channel 4/Film4.
