The Inbetweeners have announced a follow-up to their titular hit movie, one of the most lucrative UK comedies ever made.
• Inbetweeners announce movie sequel scheduled for August 2014
• Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley and Blake Harrison will all return
The cast, Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley and Blake Harrison, have all signed up to play the hapless teenagers and have started work on the film, which will hit cinemas next August.
Iain Morris and Damon Beesley, who created the show which started out on E4, said: “We couldn’t be more excited to be making another Inbetweeners movie with Simon, Joe, James and Blake.
“Frankly it’s pathetic how much we’ve all missed each other. A new chapter in the lives of the Inbetweeners feels like the very least we can do to thank the fans for their phenomenal response to the first movie.”
The first film, which saw the cast head off on a lads’ holiday to Malia in Crete, was a massive commercial hit and raked in more than £13 million in its first weekend and also made millions in the DVD market.
