‘Inbetweeners’ creators mull movie sequel

Damon Beesley, Iain Morris develop idea for sequel

LONDON — A sequel to the U.K. record-breaking feature “The Inbetweeners Movie” is being lined up.

The movie version of the teen-friendly Channel 4 laffer, which bows in the U.S. Sept. 7, was budged at £3.5 million ($5.5 million), but took $71 million at the U.K. box office.

Pic also performed well in Australia and Germany, and was a big earner for 4Rights thanks to DVD and Blu-ray sales.

Damon Beesley, co-creator of “The Inbetweeners,” told U.K. tabloid the Sun a follow-up was being teed up.

He said, “I don’t want to give too much away at this stage but we have been developing an idea for a sequel.”

Beesley’s collaborator Iain Morris confirmed on Twitter that a second “Inbetweeners” movie was in the cards.

Asked if the Sun’s story was true, he said, “Yes, but it’s far from signed and like Damon said we want to make sure we have a good enough story to tell.”

The first film, in which the show’s four teen boys travel to Crete for a boozy summer holiday to celebrate leaving school, was last summer’s surprise U.K. hit.

Its opening weekend was the biggest ever for a comedy, eclipsing previous record holders “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason” and “The Hangover: Part 2.”

A U.S. version of the British TV show, which bowed on Channel 4 spin-off web E4 in 2008, has recently launched on MTV and there are suggestions of a U.S. feature to follow.

The Inbetweeners Movie” is distributed in the U.S. by Wrekin Hill.
