Creators behind the smash hit TV series The Inbetweeners have today confirmed all the rumours going around on those blog things: there will be a sequal to the movie.
But wait, there’s more – not only have they confirmed the very much-talked-about follow-up to the 2011 movie edition of the franchise, but work has in fact already started, or so says Damon Beesley, who scripted the first film, along with partner in crime Iain Morris.
In an interview with The Sun, Beesley stated: “I don’t want to give too much away at this stage, but yes, we have been developing an idea for a sequel. We miss working with Simon, Joe, James and even Blake too much not to give it a go.” And why the hell not? Given the fact that the movie quickly became the highest grossing comedy film in UK movie history, earning £45 million.
Though the top writer was quick to settle down the hype, continuing to say that there is a concern “to make sure that we can do justice to a follow-up”, which is already more planning than the creators of The Hangover put into their sequel. Iain Morris backed up the sentiments via Twitter, which you can check out below.
The movie is yet to be released in the US, but should hit the big screen there in September, and you guessed, they’ve already detailed plans to begin their own version of the show. Though given the awful, awful, awful, awful trailer, it’s looking like the British wit didn’t make it across the pond.
@thehamp3 yes, but it’s far from signed and like Damon said we want to make sure we have a good enough story to tell
